A Word With the Wives Of the "Death Wishers"


By Bill Maloney The gnys w b write the local and syndicated newspaper hits about the Lyutes who drive race cars professionally ought to sPend a few days at I I Indy prior to the 500 and see flrst-hand what these h t dogs are really o like. The scribes will m doubt iind that the 'death wish" tmops are as , normal as your next door neighbor and just like him they put on thetr r trousers one leg at a Hme. These drlvers are for the most part family I men, guys who one day found out that they could do something a Uttle Mt ! better than the next fellow -drive a race car. So for the benefit of the spin, crash and bum pumalists here's what the race drivers wivw have to say a b u t their husband's professions justme your wife may comment , on yours. Mrs. Dan Gurney (four kids) counts the days till his retirement, wants to see more of him. Danny, 5, jwt had ablrthdaybut DanSr. couldn't make the pvhr because ofIndy.Mrs.Gary CoogQn sald, *I don't see him much between April and September." Mrs. Carl WllUams said, "1 have two UHle girls so I don't have to worry abojcthem becoming race a drivers." Mrs. Eddie Sachs, wife of the late and great championship c r drlver carrles on Eddie's Red Ball Transit besiness. So the fellas at the Speedway have a job to do do they each do it io their own intense way. Mel KBoyon (fifth place, $22,WO) wears a special leather glove contairdng a metal cylinder on his left hend. His ilagers were amputatedaiteraLanghornecrashlastyear and the metal cyllndered glove was isshloned so that he could grip the steering wheel. He inserts the custom glove into a pin on the steering wheel at the 10 o'clock pasb Hon, then pulls down wlth hls left and pushes up wlth his rfgbt hand. Gutsy? YOU bet. ALSO AT INDY t of a broken torsion rod on the Jim Clark's slowdown w Yb. w front end.

The super sport has nine "staggered" block bands which insure maximum road-holding when cornering. This is the extra-wide "high" performance tread. This profile, with its many angled tread-blocks prevents the collection of water (& aquaplaning) on wet roads. The stepped shoulder adds 10% more surface to the tire for comering. The belted construction of the tire results in reduced rolling resistance permanent traction at all speeds 8 gives coder running with higher mileage.

24 hours and 3,020 miles of tire torture -second straight Le Mans win for Goodyear Blue Streaks.
Le Mans. Another win for Goodyear, and a clean sweep of the three toughest endurance races of the season. First came the Daytona Continental -the only round-the-clock race in the United States. Then, victory a t Sebring's 12 Hours of Endurance. And now, one, b o , three a t Le Mans -the original 24-hours of tire torture. A l l three races won on Goodyear Blue Streak Racing Tires. Although if was the second time in a row that Goodyear took the honors a t Le Mans, it was a race ,that still made history. First win for an American car. .,- > u*A new lap record of 143.5 miles an hour. The longest 8 distance ever run -3,020 miles worth of acceleration, braking, twists and turns -at a record speed of 125.5 miles an hour. And although first position was a see-saw battle throughout the entire 24 hours, a car on Goodyear tires was always in the lead. The tire that ran away with Le Mans i s called a Goodyear Blue Streak Sports Car Special. Special, because it's designed to meet the rugged demands of any track it runs on. Made for maximum getaway in the straights. Extra side bite in the curves. And, vital to the fickle weather a t Le Mans, designed to run as well in the wet as in the dry. The results a t Le Mans speak for themselves. Another all-out victory for Blue Streaks. N o wonder winners go Goodyear.
