Ernie Gahan, Bill Wimble

In 1963 at Daytona, Marvin Panch was driving a Maserati and shooting for a new speed record. He lost control of the car, which crashed and burst into flames.
Five men who saw this ran to the blaze and pulled Panch out before he was killed by the smoke and flames. Four of them are in the picture. L-R: Jerry Raborn, Panch, Steve Petrasek (standing), Ernie Gahan and Bill Wimble. The fifth, not in this picture, was Tiny Lund.
