    Dana passed away quite young (30 years old) from a heart attack in 1983. Curiously, his place of birth is also listed as Racine - 3 years after his brother was born. I don't believe the family resided in Racine. I wonder if they went back to the same hospital simply because that was where Pancho was born?

      Both Pancho and Dana returned to Southern California, which is where they were living when they began their racing careers. Pancho and Johnny Parsons Jr. both began racing T.Q. midgets at Trojan Speedway in South Gate. Swede Savage, raced motorcycles there. I've seen a great photo of both fathers and sons taken at the track. I've also seen a photo of Savage and Dan Gurney at the track.
