The starting grid for the 1958 Grand Prix.
 Ed Crawford in the #61 Cunningham Lister Jaguar.  Always calm and precise, Crawford was the winner.
 Ed Crawford on his way to winning the Grand Prix
 Crawford and Momo stop to give the checkered flag back to Tex Hopkins.
 Ed Crawford pulls his winning Lister off into the grass after his cool down lap.  Crawford is signaling the car is broken and cannot make the victory lap.
 Fast Eddie Crawford took his chief Alfred Momo on the victory lap.  BUT notice they are in Lister #60 when Crawford drove #61.  The winning car was sick and barely made it to the finish and Momo and Crawford stole Hansgen’s car for the honor lap.
 Crawfords Lister-Jag wins the Grand Prix on the same day his boss, Briggs Cunningham clinches the America’s Cup yacht races.  A great weekend for Briggs.
 Walt Hansgn in #60 was an unusual second to Ed Crawford.  Hansgen would be the 1958 SCCA CM champion.
 Hansgen as he hits the turn at the bottom and heads up the hill.  The knobbly was soon to be replaced by the more aero Lister designed by Frank Costin.
 Gus Andrey had moved up from his previous 2 liter Ferrari to this stunning 4.1 Ferrari 335 monster. Only the Listers were quicker and Gus finished 3rd.
 The Reeds Race Rads 250TR in the paddock.  BARC founder Joe Tierno in the blue jacket is there to supervise.
 The George Reed racing team logo - Reeds Race Rats.
 Ed Hugus spins the nearly new 250TR at the hairpin. This was the last turn on the course, now where the first turn is located. Hugus was 6th overall despite the spin and 4rd in CM behind the two Listers and Andrey’s Ferrari.
 E. D. Martin in his Ferrari returned to the Glen but could only finish 10th and behind the small Elva of Frank Baptista.
 Major Gil Geitner’s 2 liter Ferrari 550TR had a quick run to 1st in E Modified and 8th overall.
 The good Major in a close-up.  Bell helmet, split lens goggles, arms out.  The perfect late 50’s driving style.
 The Hi-Tork Special Ferrari-Chrysler of Rich Lyeth had heaps of power but it was not running at the end of the race.
 Bill Sadler in his Canadian Sadler Special MkII.  Sadler won the Glen Classic in June but did not finish at the Grand Prix.
 The Sadler MkII was essentially hand built.  Small and light with a Corvette motor Sadler harassed the Cunningham cars, the Scarabs and every Ferrari and Maserati it came across.  A fantastic tribute to a creative builder and engineer.
 Sadler brings his car into the paddock.  Note the unusual fact the car carries one exhaust pipe for each cylinder.  It sounded fabulous.
 In the paddock, Alfred Momo explains something to Bob Holbert.  Future champion Al Holbert listens.
 The start of the Queen Catherine Cup. Bob  Holbert on the outside is barely in front of Don Sessler’s #74 up the hill with Newt Davis in #33 alongside.  All are in Porsche 550RS racers.  Flyod Aaskov in the #67 Lotus is already ahead of the GM field and he stayed there the entire race.
 Bob Holbert narrowly leads Don Sessler in the Queen Catherine Cup for G&F modified cars.  That is how they finished, Holbert 1st and Sessler 2nd.
 Bob Holbert’s Porsche won the Queen Catherine Cup then came back later in the day to beat most of the big engined cars in the Grand Prix.  He and Sessler were 4th and 5th overall.
 Newt Davis, best known as the proprietor of Lime Rock Lodge had a great day to finish 3rd behind Holbert and Sessler.
 Frank Baptista in his Elva MkIII was 3rd in GM and 6th overall.
 BARC member Chuck Dietrich finished 2nd in his Elva MkII.
 Don Peters in his Elva was 4th in GM and 8th overall.  Peters was an excellent race driver and did so with one arm.
 Doc Wyllie in his Lotus was fast but did not finish.
 Millard Rip Ripley’s Elva MkII was another non finisher
