    Great driver successful in F1, CART, sports cars and NASCAR. Ran his own car and team in F1 and CART. He was the last of that breed.

    Farewell to a RACER. He won in almost anything he drove: F1, Le Mans, NASCAR, Can-Am, Indycar. Uniquely he scored debut wins for 3 makes: Brabham, Porsche and Eagle. He then went on to become a successful Indycar entrant, winning Indianapolis 3 times with his Eagles. Plus so much more I can't remember.
    My condolences to his family and friends.
