    Back in the late '70s and early '80s, there were some similar cars at Marriott's Great America in Santa Clara. When my friends and I drove them, as soon as we were out of sight of the workers, we would stop, open the engine cover and disconnect the governor on the carb. Then we would haul ass until we came up on the car ahead of us (no way to pass on that course). Fun times for a junior gearhead.

    From reports on this crash Bettenhausen did three flips into the infield on the first day of Time Trials at Indianapolis in 1959. Amazingly, he was basically unhurt. This is the car that was sold to Harry Turner in its wrecked state and he somehow got it back on the track the next weekend although qualifying ended before it could find enough speed.

    TB was pretty lucky that day here you can see that the roll bar packed full of dirt where it dug into the infield.
