1968 LA Times Gran Prix at Riverside had a Road Runner as a pace car, it was also used to pace the Stardust Grand Prix Can Am races in late 1968.

this was a promo Road Runner that an LA Times illustrator was given to drive around to drum up interest in the race by free publicity.


This 1969 Road Runner convertible was gifted to 1968 Times Grand Prix race winner Bruce McLaren but  Bruce declined the car for cash instead.

Found on a facebook site that I just learned of, the Road Runner facebook page.

from the book 1969 Plymouth Road Runner By Wes Eisenschenk
