"That's Jerry Unser in Mickey Thompson's
500x Kurtis-Cad at the first Los Angeles Times GP for Sports Cars.
During Friday or Saturday's practice
sessions, Thompson spun out at turn 5 when his motor stopped running.
Miller came along in his Millie Miglia 500X Kurtis, called "El Caballo
II", and broadsided Thompson.
Thompson was hurt badly enough to go
looking for another driver. I saw the whole thing. Ak still talks
about putting Mickey in the hospital with a bad knee.
Jerry drove the car in the Sunday big
race and later drove it at the Pomona Examiner GP, April 1959."
