This week's collection comes from Marc Tiesler:
"When Johnny O'Mara ran out of gas on the last lap of the 1986 USGP, he took his gas tank off, signed it, and gave it to Bob Hannah. He signed the tank and gave it to me that same day. That year I got to practice and hang out with Hannah a lot.
He used to call me "Jo Jo" because my butt hung out the back of my pants like Jo Jo Keller. I know it's very faded from age but it's also very real. Here are some of my passes from the 1987 Des Nations and USGPs."
