 The Collier Cup race was for MG’s only.  27 cars formed up and what followed was a remarkable photo finish race among friends.
 Great action as expected.  Ross deSt. Croix’s coupe goes wide and Jack Paveling dives.  Art Smith #43 and Hank vanDusen #21 are all up front.
 Jack Paveling leads George Valentine with 2 laps to go but Bob Bucher in 029 is ready to pass into the lead.
 The two best have cleared the field as Decker is catching Bucher.  This is the last turn as they head out on the last lap.
 Bucher brakes too late and gets all sideways.  Decker sees it and cuts inside but also loses traction.
 Decker looks at Bucher as they get the cars straight.  From here it is a drag race to the finish with Bucher winning by inches.
 The famous 029 MGA owned by Spankey Smith and driven by Bob Bucher is still racing in the 21st century.  A very celebrated car.
 Spankey and Bucher pose with Tex Hopkins.  The note is to Sherm Decker who finished inches behind Bucher.  What we know is that Sherm prepared and tuned the car that beat him.
