September 17, 2012-Mark Donahue

So I’m trying to go through all the racing stuff I’ve accumulated over the past 57 years and found some photos I took in 1971. Found a pretty good pix of Mark Donahue so I thought I’s scan it and share it with you. He would start 2nd but finish 25th this year. In 1972 of course he would win the race giving Roger Penske his first of what now stands at 15 Indy wins.

This picture was taken facing North. All cars coming out of Gasoline Ally would stop by the Goodyear side( which is where Mark’s car is in this photo) or the Firestone side on the South. They would make pressures were what they wanted and the wheels were tight.
