Just posted this on FB but thought it would be OK here:
They asked Danny to run a SCCA drivers school before racing the F5000 that he had built up. He ran it at Willow and I was proud to sign him off as Chief Steward. Later on he was running the 5000 race at Riverside. I was working Safety Steward. I rode the tow truck to pick up the car and Danny. Doing the accident report in the cab. Couldn't get much info from him for sure. In any case when we got to the garage Vel walked over and stuck his head in and asked what happened. Danny said "seat broke". Vel turned around and pointed at a mechanic and said "Pack up your tools, you're fired"
Vel is Vel Miletich who owned the Vel's Parnelli Jones Team
