That picture was taken before USAC made them put 15 inch tires on the car instead of 12 inch., which made them have to remove the fender tops over the wheels. That directly lead to the car never handling right and may have been in a factor in the terrible crash that claimed Dave MacDonald and Eddie Sachs.

You are correct but set aside several hours to read the 1200 plus comments about the accident at this thread: http://forums.autosport.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=83188&highlight=mickey+thompson The accident was not cut and dried.Henry
