"Irish" Jim McCune. McCune was the 1958 and 1959 super modified track champion at Fremont and sits sixth on the track's all-time win list with 45 victories. Known for his colorful demeanor and aggressive driving, McCune is probably best remembered for his record-shattering victory in an Australian Pursuit race where he passed every car on the track in less than half a lap. Like many drives of his day, McCune could race and win on both dirt and asphalt.
