Hey, Frank. You know what? What about a little sugar in his gas tank? That'll fix him. I read that in a magazine about how the saboteurs work.
You think I'm drunk?
I don't need any sugar in his gas tank 'cause I'm gonna beat that son-of-a-bitch anyway!

From very near the start, Newman and Woodward look so comfortable in each others presence. Well, they had been married for eleven years by then! There are other films where the "married" couple just look as though they are acting, and are not real. Here, it is so different and makes watching the rest of it worthwhile, and pleasant.
OK, so we know that neither Newman nor Kapua won the 1968 Indy 500, so-what? It is easy to join in the excitement and appreciate the drama. The joining of real footage, especially of the first-lap pile-up is neatly and realistically done.
Coping with infidelity is always going to be hard, by both partners, here they do it OK.
Richard Thomas as the adopted son is good enough and led me to then watch his simply brilliant "All Quiet on the Western Front".
