March 30-31 1963 Tucson Arizona - Dave MacDonald pilots Shelby Cobra Roadster CSX2002 in the weekend races at Tucson.
CSX2002 is Carroll's first Cobra race car. TUCSON BACKGROUND - This Cobra ran the 12 hr of Sebring race on March 23rd
and got pretty beat up, finishing the race on just 7 cylinders. As Shelby packed up the Cobras for LA he diverted one car, CSX2002,
and one driver, Dave MacDonald to Tucson. Apparently the lure of 9 Corvettes & Stingrays in the Tucson field was too much for
Shelby to pass up. Below: Dave MacDonald blasting through the desert course past the Tucson Tower.
Bill Sherwood in his Corvette Stingray led Dave early in Sunday's main event but Dave would pass Sherwood and go on to score
