Good Race, Sad Weekend at Pacific Raceways in 1964

The 1964 USRRC Driver's race at Pacific Raceways (often mistakenly called "Kent") was a very good race between Jim Hall in his Chaparral 2 and Dave MacDonald in a Shelby King Cobra.  I won't spoil the story here, so you can read about it in the page photos.
Also, I'm moving this weekend and have updated my book order info page with our new address.  So, YES, there are still some copies of my book available.

Grids On The Honor System

Qualifying for the 1964 Laguna Seca USRRC race featured rain.  It got into the timing equipment and an MG ended up with the fastest time.  That obviously couldn't be right.  Even in rain a Chaparral or Shelby Cooper-Cobra would be faster than an MG.  So the officials had the drivers turn in the fastest lap their crew timed them at. Most of the drivers agreed that the grid looked like it should.
