Which car race was it that McQueen drove with a broken left foot?

McQueen had broken his left foot in the Lake Elsinore Grand Prix riding a Motocross Husky, but continued the motorcycle race despite his injury and finished in the top ten. Soon afterwards, with his foot in a cast, he raced in the famous Sebring International Twelve Hour Endurance Race in Florida. His Porsche 908 Spyder was co-driven by Peter Revson. Steve McQueen's Porsche came in first in it's class and second overall, being beaten by a more powerful Ferarri driven by Mario Andretti in a close finish. Andretti later said,"This is the closest race I've run and I'm lucky to have taken it." McQueen told the press," We never expected to do anything against all those bigger machines. We were just trying for a class win, not the overall. This is fantastic...just fantastic!" (March1970)

The horse's name was Buster and Steve McQueen did his own riding. The director of photography on Tom Horn said, "I've never seen anyone handle a horse better. He would get on Buster with a rifle and fire at full gallop. He was going as fast as the horse could go and he handled it beautifully."
