Other Production Cars -- 1

While California's ace Corvette drivers battled for overall wins in the Production races,  the smaller-engined cars behind them fought their own wars and occasionally challenged the champions.  Your webmaster (13 years old) shot these photos at Laguna Seca, Oct. 21-22, 1961.

Walt Davis in his Porsche Carrera makes a move on Corvette star Bill Sherwood entering Laguna Seca's corkscrew.

Al Norman in #23 A.C. Bristol chases Monterey resident Earl Grafton in another A.C. Bristol.
A few laps later, Sandy Greenblatt spins into the haybales.

He was unhurt and even continued the race.
