Sebring, 1959

This is what a real, live, amateur pit crew looked like in the ‘50’s. The folks involved are, from L to R Henry Knuppel, part time mechanic and full time CIA agent. (yeah, really!) Next is Mac Ross, a damned good mechanic and ex track roadster, midget and sprint car driver (also my brother). The third fellow is Bob Garretson a TR mechanic who worked for me. Finally the last fellow is Bob Hunt a real live physicist who came along for the ride. Both Mac and Bob are no longer with us.
