Went to college in Indy 65-69. Athletic Dir of college (Cleon Reynolds) was also the Fire Chief at the track.
At practice was on pit row in 1968. Watched as driver came into the pits. It appeared he was not slowing down, and headed right for me.
Fact of the matter, he was. I jumped out of the way. Unbeknowst to me, I was standing smack-dab in the middle of the pit row fire station and his car was on fire! The burning fuel produced no visible flame as it was not gasoline but ethanol, alcohol or some such?
