Daytona 500, 1967. Mario Andretti had a very good day, but it didn’t look like that the whole time. “There’s no way Andretti should have won. He had never driven a stock car before then, the car handled badly, and he had virtually no practice time. He couldn’t even find his pit and he ran out of gas three times.” Quote and Photo from HOLMAN MOODY: The Legendary Race Team, by Tom Cotter and Al Pearce, (Jerry Overman/Smyle Media Photo)

It’s been said for years that the mechanic makes the driver. But consider the very special effort made by Charlie Jackson on behalf of his driver, Tiger Tom Pistone. Tom had certainly measured up during the feature, winning the mid-season championship in 1957 at Chicago’s Blue Island Raceway Park. The diminutive Pistone (five feet, two inches) did have a little trouble measuring up in Victory Lane, however, and his main man Jackson lent a welcome lift.
