About a third of the way through the race, Jerry Titus was trying to make a pass on Ken Duclos' white Mustang when they came together.
Titus' car spun many times before careening into the dirt bank, doing serious damage. He somehow got it over to the infield out of further
harm's way, but his day was done.

Ed Leslie, the early leader because he started on rain tires, comes in for a pit stop.

Jerry Titus chose to start the race on dry tires and it put him two laps down when he finally switched to wets.

Mark Donohue's car broke an axle to end his race. The same thing happened during a pre-race practice session the day before but that not
only ruined an axle, it destroyed the half-thickness front sheetmetal that Chevy had specially stamped out for them on a one-time only basis.

Revson goes on to win the race, his second win of the season for Cougar.

Results, as shown in SCCA "Sports Car" magazine. Even though Craig Fisher is shown in the entry list and results, it was really Gordon Dewar.

I already posted this picture in the "pace cars" thread because it shows the 1967 Camaro convertible pace car heading towards pit entrance but I also think it belongs here.  The fabulous color picture shows the field just before they got the green flag during the 1967 Bryar Trans Am race.  The front row consists of Jerry Titus who started on pole in his #17 light yellow Mustang and Peter Revson who started second in his #15 red Cougar.  Behind them in the second row you can see Milt Minter in his #78 darker yellow Mustang and Ed Leslie in his red #98 Cougar.  I'm not sure who took the photo but it was posted by Derek Sutton at the Historic SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series Fan Group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=694312197249795&set=o.109038482465812&type=3&theater

Check out the last pic in reply #8!!! You can see the right front tire of Donahue is almost off the ground and that is on a wet track!

I've read through most of the reports on this race here, and wonder why did Gord Dewar take over from, or replace Craig Fisher in the "Golden Mile" Camaro ? he didn't finish after losing the left front wheel. was it because of the length of the race ? I see a couple of the other teams had two drivers as well.

Craig Fisher was in the entry list as driver for the #77 Camaro and even in some of the reported results but he in fact had already left to join the Penske team just prior to the Bryar race and Gordon Dewar drove the car instead. If you look at pics of Fisher's #77 at Mid-Ohio, it said "Quiet Man" (appropriate if you know Fisher) above the number roundel on the driver's door. At Bryar, the words "Quiet Man" are covered over with a piece of duct tape (appropriate if you know Dewar). Craig Fisher told me personally he didn't drive at Bryar.
