Ronney was a famous sprint car driver
I wonder if he raced against a bicycle once
That vehicle Ronney is in looks like an older version of a vehicle used in draft speed records for bikes, it has a fairing with a window for the biker in back. Here's a modern version below used to set a 152+ mph record in 1985

I read about that bike years ago. It sits in a museum somewhere now if I am not mistaken since it did break the record at the time.
Here's the bike and that photo. I took these photos at the Bicycle Museum of America in Ohio in 2006. The newspaper article says his name is Letourneur and he died at age 67 of a heart attack. That's all I can make out..
