Chris Bender -- 1971 McLaren M8E / Todd Smathers -- 1972 Lola T-310

Bender, of Reno, NV,  finished 6th in his 8095cc. car.  Smathers, of Hayward, CA, was 4th in his 8500cc. monster.  Was Smathers' engine the largest in the field?  No.  That honor goes to non-starter Mike Dunkel, of Merritt Island, FL, whose 1972 McLaren M8F's giant motor displaced 8800cc.
