There are photos on your website I'd really like to use in an upcoming book. Dave is a big part of this book since it deals with road courses raced on in the 1960s

Can you help me?

I met Dave as he was related to my fathers side of the family (his step father George H McDonald who lived in Eagle Rock). I remember visiting one day when I was young and he was at his parents house and I got to sit in the car and that is still a precious memory knowing what happened

I just finished reading "Black Noon". I had just read the part where Sherry arrived back in LA. When Richie knew he was not going to see his Dad ever again. I had lost my Dad in an accident at Winchester in May of 1954. It really hit a home to me. I was 13 and listening to the 500 on the radio that fateful day. It was good to see your web site. To see your tributes to Dave and all the pictures of the family. Life goes on, but it is good to remember.

Congratulations to Dave MacDonald's family for Dave's induction to the Corvette Hall Of Fame. No tickets left for the dinner & ceremony but did go to the musuem Friday. Great display of Dave's Corvettes. He is VERY deserving of this honor!

(65) It was both an honor and a pleasure to meet Rich and Sherry at the Motoman interview of Peter Brock at the Peterson earlier this year! My finace Marissa (in the picture) and I had the luck and pleasure of being seated next to Sherry and Rich. Very, very gracious people. All the best to you and great work in keeping the accomplishments and amazing life of Dave alive for future generations!

A small tribute from France.
I just read an excellent article on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the tragic accident. It says clearly that Dave McDonald was undoubtedly about to become a great champion. Sad loss, but it was another time.

I just finished reading the book "Black Noon" about the 1964 Indy 500. I was fascinated by the story and looked to Dave's tribute website for more info. I am so sorry for his family at losing a husband and father at such a young age. By all the accounts I have read he was a magnificent man and a true talent to the sport. Thank you for keeping this website active, it is such a great story to tell.

I think it is absolutely wonderful that Dave MacDonald has been selected for induction ino the National Corvette Hall of Fame. Dave was certainly one of the most talented Corvette drivers (and Cobra too of course) and worthy of this honor.

(PS. I’ve tried several times to post a comment in your guest book but couldn’t)

I’m sorry if this is a duplicate post but I think your guestbook is not working. Congratulations to Dave MacDonald’s family for Dave getting in the Corvette HOF. In my opinion he should have been in a long time ago. He was so much fun to watch racing a Corvette. I was lucky to see him race in Pomona Ca and remember to this day how fast he took the corners. Congratulations!

Great great great that Dave MacDonald will be in the corvette hall of fame. He deserves to be there and so does Bob Bondurant. This is a great website for honoring Dave, he was an amazing race car driver but I agree with the other poster that the guestbook page does not seem to work!

Big Carroll Shelby fan and followed his career. Dave MacDonald played a major role in the success of the Cobra, even winning its first race. It’s nice that people can come to this site to learn about Dave and his racing career. Well done

Rich or Vicki, I am doing a historical piece on Corvette and would like to talk to you about your Mom and Dad picking up the ’63 Z06 Corvettes in St. Louis.

Can you email me back when you have time?

Thanks,
Chet Burks

I was a senior in high school in 1964, working in a concession stand underneath the stands on the main straight at Indy. We had cut a deal with the ushers on the top tier of the main straight and I was able to watch the start from the aisle of the top tier. I saw the wreck and later that day the ambulance carrying Dave came by our stand. That memory still with me almost 50 years later. I ran into Dave’s brother, Doug, at a car show last week and he told me about this website. At the time the Indy paper didn’t give all of Dave’s accomplishments, this website was an eye opener for me.

To Dave McDonald a life not lived long ago. Thanks Doug for informing me of this website.

Each year around the running of the indy 500 I think of Dave. I lived in chatsworth california when dave was killed in the 1964 race and it was a very sad day. He and dan gurney were local heros and we loved to read about his racing in the newspapers. Dave is remembered fondly.

I am looking for a photo of Dave from the Times GP which shows him going into a right turn at almost a 45 degree angle. Can anyone help?

Also, do any of Dave’s solid axle Corvette race cars still exist?

It’s been a delight to search thru the website and learn about Dave. The ’64 500 was the race that captured my attention and started my love for racing. I knew very little about Dave aside that he drove Cobras and King Cobras for Shelby. I didn’t know about his success in stock cars and how well known he was in the racing community.

Thanks for putting the site up, and I hope more content will be added in the future!!!

I love these old video’s I just watched the 1963 Road America 500 video and they mention my father getting passed. He is in car 26 i think it was a 1960 Corvette Special. The mark is 4;49 of the video. I would love to download the video and take a snapshot of him in the car. smile
