The "Los Angeles Examiner
& Herald-Express 2nd annual Grand Prix for Sports Cars"
featured the West Coast's top sports car drivers facing international stars
like Carroll Shelby, Dan
Gurney, and World Champion
Brabham. Indy car pros Lloyd
Ruby and Rodger
Ward also appeared (both DNF'd).
|Hey! Keep your
eyes on the road!
Carroll Shelby spots something
REALLY INTERESTING on his way to a win in the Camoradi-entered Maserati
Type 61 "Birdcage" #2458.
He drove an intelligent
race in very hot weather and outlasted the early leaders.
brave Texans show how it's done.
Lloyd Ruby "on the limit"
in the scary "Micro-Lube" Maserati 450S #4509 leads Shelby through Riverside's
high-speed Turn 1.
Ruby's run ended on lap
50 while running 2nd.
