1967 Gary Nixon profile and history

Cover: A fitting tribute to the outstanding star at Daytona International Speedway in March is this speed study of Gary Nixon astride his winning Triumph. If you're the eagle-eyed type you may have noted that Gary was wearing white leathers in the 200-Mile AMA National Championship. Photographer Jerry West snapped this fine shot during practice (Undoubtedly the status symbol of a successful racer will now be the ownership of two sets of leathers!). The day before the 200 Nixon also copped the 100-miler for 250cc Class riding a Yamaha.
