    Mark Donohue in an AMC Javelin chases Parnelli Jones' Mustang. Dan Gurney: "It was the very best kind of road racing that I can remember. All of the factories were behind us and we had the best drivers in this country competing. We also raced on all the best natural road circuits in North America and unlike today, we had great fans who could really identify with the cars that were on the track. It's too bad that it all had to go away."
