1974 Gary Jones / Can-Am / Champion Spark Plugs Ad

And when teammates Marty Tripes and Jim Ellis finished second and third, one bike marque had emerged as the first to ever sweep the series’ first three places. That winning marque was Can-Am. And sparking its 1-2-3 finish were Champion Gold Palladium spark plugs. The premium performance spark plugs for competition and street.
