David Donohue
Mark Donohue's zoon David racet ook; niet onverdienstelijk maar niet op het niveau van zijn beroemde vader. Wel opmerkelijk is dat hij de 24 uur van Daytona wint exact 40 jaar na zijn vader.

Mark Donohue's son David is a racer too; he is doing well but not at the level of his famous father. Remarkable is that David wins the 24 hours of Daytona 40 years after his dad did.
