Speaking by telephone from her home in La Quinta, Calif., where she moved a few months after receiving a $1,200 winner's check that represented one of the biggest paydays of her 10-year career, Hanson can recall the week in Fort Wayne, Ind., for more than what she did on the course at Orchard Ridge Country Club.

No. 36, a '34 Chevy coupe, clocks 158 mph on the dirt track before pulling into the pit. The driver struggles to breathe. Maybe he is choking on his helmet strap, because the air keeps catching under his face shield and lifting it up. Maybe he is just scared. He has never driven so fast. Dean Renfro says all this excitement happened on a hot August afternoon in 1969, but it might as well have been yesterday.
