Oscar Koveleski's Can Am car (the M8B McLaren) was criticized by the SCCA for it's paint scheme, as they had a rule limiting how much body space could be used for advertising.... he told them "it's just racing stripes"



When the SCCA looked at it, they saw a slot car track advertising "Auto World" (his mail order company)

He replied "That isn't advertising, that's racing stripes" and then he went back to racing.

This is the same guy who was 2nd in the Cannonball Run with the Chevy van loaded with 5 drums of 130 octane  racing gas
