Neither guy. The one I know/knew would be in his 70's and used to race out of Florida. I remember him in either an red Alfa sedan or a corvette. He ran a number of IMSA pro races and many times in the 24 hour at Daytona.

"Yes Daytona" I was getting all my new stuff up to speed when a rocker stud unscrewd itself and the pushrod jumped out did a number on the guide then hid behind some other pushrods.:censored:
Unfortunatley the lifter chipped the cam before it was ejected to join the pushrod. New cam on its way plus I am going to lap the valves in a couple are leaking already!:confused:
No point in racing and breaking more.
Tom was going like the wind in the int'l horseshoe he moved over for a gt1 car who could not get by, Tom then beat the gt1 through the infield.
Last but not least Wilbur Pickett lives in Daytona just races now and again not a regular AS.

I would expect a response like this from a Brit.
