I just stumbled across a video of one of the first races that I attended, the 1968 USAC Rex Mays 300 at Riverside Raceway. I previously wrote a post about the race and it was great to watch it again. I had forgotten that Mario Andretti had taken over Joe Leonard’s Lotus then managed to hit his teammate Art Pollard at turn nine, taking both Lotus 56 Turbines out of the race. Mario did have brake problems I should add. This would be the last time the Lotus Turbines would run.
