Race winner John von Neumann in in #11.  The black car next to him is 4th place finisher Jack Breskovich in his Cad-Allard.  #00 is Cal Niday, 6th place finisher in his 1500cc. OSCA.  No sign of Duffy Livingstone in the Eliminator, but your webmaster is sure he soon appeared among the leaders.

Note athletic starter Al Torres' leap as he gives the field the green flag.
