Chuck Sargent

drove the ex-Bill Krause Maserati Type 61 #2469 in 1961.  He won at Stockton on April 15-16, then at Laguna Seca on June 10-11.  Don Hulette outlasted him at Cotati on July 16th.

Then he embarked on a tour of Mid-Western pro races.  At Continental Divide Raceway he and the Maserati ended up UNDERNEATH Ron Hunter's Chevy powered OSCA.  Sargent reappeared for the fall pro races; he didn't qualify at Riverside, and finished well back at Laguna Seca.

Sargent won again at Stockton in 1962, this time on the street course.
