Roger Penske's Racing History - Part 2
Part 2: Before becoming a winner in Indy Car and NASCAR competition, Penske
Racing dominated the American sports car scene. In this installment, Roger
Penske laid the foundation for his race team by hiring Mark Donohue. The
pair won the 1969 Rolex 24 At Daytona and captured USRRC, Trans-Am and
Can-Am championships, paving the way for Penske Racing's move into Indy Car
and NASCAR. See more at www.alltelracing.com

Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
