 Alfred Momo signals his two Listers as they chase Daigh’s Scarab on the first lap.
 Early on Ed Crawford leads Chuck Daigh. Note the Jag still looks good but Daigh has been hammering on him and both cars are dented.
 Chuck Daigh is now ahead of Ed Crawford but you can see the RR of the Lister is bent as is the front of the Scarab.  All the “gentlemans” racing was tossed out for this epic battle.
 While Daigh and Crawford are beating on each other Walt Hansgen, Lance Reventlow and Bill Sadler are fighting at the front. Here Reventlow slides off the track at the chicane leading to the start finish line.
 Hansgen is in the pits to change the blown LR tire and yelling something at an SCCA official while Momo kneels to check how work is progressing. Gordon Mackenzies C type passes in the background to unloap himself.
 The starter signals a beat up but still fast Chuck Daigh Scarab that there is one lap to go. Hansgen is chasing, setting lap record after lap record but ran out of time to catch up.  He fell 9 seconds short.
 Hansgen & Daigh after the race.  They knew they had been in a battle and each respected the other.
 Lance Reventlow gets ready to race.  Pretty sure that is Phil Remington standing next to him.
 The Scarab's got lost on their way in from California. They arrived late Saturday night with almost no time for preparation.  The BARCBOYS awoke on a foggy Sunday morning to see these magnificent cars.

 Officals wanted the Scarab's in a fair fight and created a special practice session Sunday morning. Here Chuck Daigh in the unpainted car  and Lance Reventlow, behind, get ready.
 Hansgen at speed.  Walt proved his skills by battling back after his flat and setting a new lap record every time past.
 A nice photo of the Lister Jag that Ed Crawford would drive in the race.  Still pristine and undented.  It would not be that way at the end of the day and, in fact, would not finish.
 Rich Lyeth's monstrous Ferrari 375 - Chev called the Hi-Tork Special.  Some think it was a Chrysler Hemi underneath the hood.
