Gregory in Temple Buell's 4.7 liter Maserati 450S #4508. A contender
in one of the most famous races of the 1950s, Gregory led early and finished
Shelby in the John Edgar's 450S #4506, East Coast contender Walt Hansgen
in a Briggs Cunningham-
Jaguar, and rising star Dan
Gurney in Frank Arciero's 4.9 Ferrari #0478AM fought it out in a four-
way pounding battle on the 3.25 mile Riverside course.
Shelby won after recovering
from a spin. Gurney finished 2nd and established himself as a top-line
driver. Hansgen, his Jaguar outgunned by the big Italian iron, followed
Gregory home for 4th place.
