A Goodyear Q&A ad after Donohue won the USRRC and Trans-Am Championships in 1968, both on Goodyear tires of course.

Here's a Road & Track magazine article on retired racers. Mark Donohue and his contemporaries Dan Gurney,
Parnelli Jones and Jackie Stewart. This was put together just as Donohue was deciding to come back out of
retirement to run Penske's car in Formula 1. Many thanks to Mike K (Swede70) for sharing this with us.

That article, "ON RETIREMENT FROM RACING," is outstanding!  Though I respect each of the driver's in this article, the humility expressed by some, really helps you gain a sense of their character.

Thanks Mike K (Swede 70) and Jon, for sharing.

That's the best article on Mark Donahue that I've read, in helping to understand the man his background and goals...
