Ascot
From William F Nolan's McQueen:

"I 'd never really competed on a dirt track, and I knew I could get bent way out of shape doin' those crazy jumps and all. But I thought, well, the people want to see me, so why not give it a shot." - Steve McQueen.

Taking home a trophy
Steve holding trophy A racing journalist who watched McQueen drive a night race desribed the action:

McQueen guns forward, makes the 25-foot jump, bounces, keeps charging, slides wide on a turn, is slapped by another Jeep, spins and stalls. He starts again in next-to-last position, turns on the steam, and roars up through the pack, passing the third-place runner, then the second-place machine... until he's banging along at full throttle right behind the leader. On the final lap, McQueen can't quite get around him, but takes a very impressive second overall at the flag. Top driving in anybody's league.
