|(3-7-08) From Can-Am veteran and
photographer Ike Smith:
"I don't know the gentleman's name with
his left hand on the roll bar. The guy with the blue baseball cap
is Bill Spangler whose Indianapolis shop the car was prepped at.
The blond guy reaching into the car is Eldon Rasmussen who built modifieds
and raced Indy cars for a while. He is Canadian and he and his brother
had several martinizing shops in Canada.
The kid in the black pants and tennys
is Boyd Jeffrie's son. The team was the ROBBINS (Marshall)/JEFFRIES
(Boyd) LOLA . The race is at Texas and the car would not start on
the grid so they ran back and pulled the starter out of the Chevy truck
that hauled the car and put it in. There was no TILTON light weight
gear reduction starter at the time."
