Bill Krause -- Jaguar D-Type / Eric Hauser "Morgensen Special"

This photo must have been shot early in the hard-fought main event on August 19, 1956, as the top four finishers battle through this corner.  Krause (4th) leads Eric Hauser (2nd) in the soon-to-be "Old Yeller I".  Behind Hauser is race winner Harrison Evans in his Ferrari Monza.  3rd place finisher Richie Ginther trails here in John von Neumann's Porsche Spyder.
 

(12-1-13)   From author and historian Jim Sitz:

"Hot day in the hills 1st running...  Big battle with Krause and winner Evans in 750 Monza."
