STP Turbine Car #60, the car driven by Joe Leonard at Indy 500 in 1968 on exhibit here in 1969 at the Cincinnati Autorama. As some know or may not know, Joe Leonard came in with the highest speed during quaifications and on the day of the big Indy 500 race Joe was running in 1st place with only about 9 laps to go when both he & his teamate in STP #20 turbine car both slowed with identical snapped fuel pump drive shafts. Bobby Unser flew by finishing with his 1st ever Indy win, That's not a very good story is it? But who knows how things really happen at those races.
