Mark Donohue's Sunoco Javelin prior to the '71 Wolverine Trans-Am. Privateer racer Martin Shook's blue '67 Z-28 Camaro (car #54) can be seen next
to Donohue's car but he's not sharing a front row spot with Mark. The inner row of cars will head out first followed by the row headed by Martin's car.

You might like this one as well. Same car at Daytona in February, 1968. Not allowed to run in the
Daytona 24-Hour race because it still did not pass tech inspection.

 Re:  Photo of Parnelli and Ruby in Citrus 250...race was won by Don Yenko in recently purchased( by Mike Summers of Best Photo Service ) Yunick Camaro. In my book " The Yenko Era " you will find a photo of Mr. Jones sitting in the Mustang looking very unhappy. He said he was at a disadvantage being a Firestone dealer ,having to use a tire not competitive with latest Goodyears. Also , I recall he had trouble with the shifter.

Re the Michigan 71 T/A photo - I believe those cars were lined up for a practise session, in no particular order.

Another shot of the Alan LaBrush #70 Camaro prior to the running of the '71 Road America Trans-Am.
That's Frank Reimann's #43 Camaro. My stepfather, Jack Guerrier, is the person talking to Alan LaBrush.

Mo Carter's red '67 Z-28, taken at Mosport in September 1967. These come courtesy of Mike Scott (group/7) from Ontario, Canada.
Thanks for sharing, Mike!

Love it. Any idea why it did not pass tech?

I have misplaced my "Chevrolet = Racing?" book, which I think has some details on that. From memory, I think most of it had to do with aerodynamic trickery such as the mounting of the headlight doors and the heavily smoothed underside of the car. The SCCA tech people did not like what they saw.

I seem to remember reading something about the windshield being slightly raked and the nose angled down more than stock. But those may have been tricks used on his Chevelle.

This photo is from Ontario Motor Speedway, October 20, 1970. Doug Hooper's McLaren and Bud Turner's Camaro (#42) in an SCCA National event. Bud Turner's '67 Camaro would be in the Riverside Trans-Am race just two weeks later. (Jon Mello Collection)

Thanks for posting this photo, Jon.  



Though I don't have more on the entry for this race, given the wheels and skinned lower chassis on the McLaren, and that Doug Hooper is driving... I'd say this is the old Holywood Sport Cars McLaren.  Chassis# 20-09.

Thanks again, and sorry I don't have anything to add about the Bud Turner Camaro that is pictured.

I thought that might be your McLaren, Chad, but I wasn't quite sure. I'll look to see if I have any more pics of it.

Below is the '69 Camaro of Carlos Iribe, also seen at the same Ontario event as the Bud Turner car above. It too ran at the '70 Riverside
Trans-Am a couple of weeks later. I'll have to check to be sure but I think Carlos' car was green. (Jon Mello Collection)
