would have to step up the cars performance to beat Larry Gotelli
in Round 1 Sunday, the Team installed a new blower and made other
performance adjustments that proved to be too much for the track.
Shortly after this photo was taken the WW2 car started smoking
the tires and the race was over.
As usual, Murphy
blamed himself for the loss. The sign of a classy and confident
driver. "I made the wrong decision. I knew
Larry was going to run good. i knew we weren't going to go out
there and run 6.20 and beat him, I felt."
