Tonight on Beyond the Bricks, Jake Query and Mike Thomsen discuss drivers that made the crossover between IndyCar and NASCAR. Mike and Jake talk about Mario Andretti winning the 1967 Daytona 500 and how he wasn’t accepted into the series with open arms. Then, we hear from IMS Historian Emeritus Donald Davidson on Fred Lorenzen testing an IndyCar at IMS in 1965.
Jim Clark drove almost anything with four wheels, including a stock car. Jake and Mike talk about Clark’s career and his run in NASCAR and the one race he participated in at Rockingham.
