Footnotes

  • Texan Lloyd Ruby raced in the USAC Championship series from 1958 to 1977 including 17 Indy 500 starts from 1960 through 1977 while also actively participating the development of the Ford GT40 as well as in endurance racing in the GT40 including the 24 Hours of Daytona--in which he was victorious in both 1965 and 1966 co-driving with Ken Miles, the Sebring 12 Hours--which he also won with Ken Miles, and the 1966 World Sportscar Championship--ditto. Ruby's 2000 biography, Lloyd Ruby: The Greatest Driver Never to Win the Indy 500, earned its title from his having led the 500 in five different years for a total of 126 laps but never finished better than third.

    The car in which Ruby qualified third but fell out of the race after three laps due to a dropped valve was based on a Formula 1 Brabham BT11. Team owner Gene White--who initially had hope to race Brabhams--purchased a BT11 and had Dave Laycock design a new Lotus-beater based on it--the result of which was the Mongoose 67. While success wasn't acheived in '67, the Mongoose finished in 5th place in '68. This nose cone is in 'as raced' condition and signed by Lloyd Ruby.
