Jerry Grant -- Ferrari 250TR

A frequent winner in Pacific Northwest events in 1960-61 in ex-factory team car Ferrari #0704, Grant qualified for the "L.A. Times Grand Prix" at Riverside on Oct. 15, 1961, through the "Consolation Race".  He finished 14th after a solid drive in an obsolete car.

The "Consolation Race" enabled cars unable to post fast enough laps (for whatever reason) to qualify for the main event directly to advance. Roger Penske in his Cooper Monaco, Augie Pabst in the Cunningham Team's Maserati Type 63 V12, and Don Hulette in the Arciero Bros. Ferrari-Maserati that started life as Ferrari 375MM  #0362, all made the Grand Prix field by this route in the over two-liter class. George Grinzewitsch in his older Cooper Monaco and Steve Baughman in his Maserati 200SI moved up in the under two-liter class.
