I don't have any other info other than what I posted about the auction but good luck. Maybe it's still available.

A little too early for the Trans-Am era but an interesting card from the RRDC signed by Mark Donohue in this ebay auction...

I have had the Mid-Ohio program for awhile. This was an image that I think I saved off an ebay auction because it showed the spectator pass.

Here's a very rare item I've never seen before - a poster for the '67 Las Vegas 350 Trans-Am race. Anything from this race is a particularly hard find, for those who are into collecting Trans-Am memorabilia.

As they say -  very cool!  I was a spectator at this race - on my way to CA.  Can-Am race was also this wknd.  On the Monday there was a Firestone test day at the
track with Mario driving, and I got a ride from the track to Las Vegas in a real 289 Shelby street Cobra

No, Mario was testing tires, and there was a guy watching who owned the Cobra, and he gave me the ride into town.

Correction, it wasn't Mario, but Parnelli who was testing tires, and the Can-Am race was not on the same wknd., but later
