A bit of an urgent push here as I have a deadline looming. If anyone has access to the 1958 Floyd Clymer Indianapolis Yearbook, could they please check on the story of the McKay car driven by Don Edmunds. I know he crashed in practice on May 10 and the car was repaired and qualified by Jerry Unser. What I'm interested in is whether or not Edmunds returned to car at all for any further practice before Unser (or any other drivers) stepped in. Could someone check the Daily Trackside Reports?

Any help, ASAP, would be appreciated. Thanks!

The trackside report is so sparse it doesn't even give the car Edmunds was driving, let alone if anyone drove it before qualification. Indeed the day-by-day doesn't mention Unser.

Thanks ensign :up: I had considered that a possibility. Thanks for checking.
