You need to add a widget, row, or prebuilt layout before you’ll see anything here. 🙂
Mark Donohue 1937- August 19th 1975.

5 pax came out for some betterment and learned about the Indy 500 and Mark Donohue.  Mark was known as Captain Nice in the garage.  He was a mechanical engineer and used those skills to build awesome racecars.  He drove F1, NASCAR, Can AM, SCCA, and won the Indy 500 in 1972.  He was killed in Austria in 1975 during a testing accident.  See Links below for images of the cars.
