Sunday 21st September 1969
Mark Donohue, driving a Chevrolet Camaro, beat Parnelli Jones, driving a Ford Mustang, by 2.17 seconds to win the Sears Point 200 Trans-Am race at Sears Point, California, US. The win clinched Chevy’s second straight Trans-Am title. After spraying the crowd in victory circle with champagne, Donohue picked up a garden hose and continued his celebration. His team owner, Roger Penske, locked himself in a street car with the windows rolled up to escape the antics.
