Les Allen had a bit of a problem in T.B. Smallwood's car at Indy in 1972. Damn near landed in his lap.

 


 

After a marginal 1972 debut the Lisa & Rossi car, with a new wing, paint scheme and driver (Danny Ongais), the "Ironing Board" ran the 1973 season and recorded a top speed of 243. The car loved to mile an hour but refused to ET with the other top runners. It was deemed to be too heavy (the bane of most streamline or wedge cars) and was retired in favor of a conventional Woody car.
