Ernie McAfee at Santa Barbara, Sept 1955

Here is Ernie McAfee in Bill Doheny's Ferrari Monza, holding off Phil Hill in John von Neumann's Monza.  This is the Saturday Over 1500cc Modified race.  It was a classic battle between McAfee, Hill and Ken Miles (in Tony Parravano's 4.9 liter Ferrari). McAfee led the first lap, then Miles led the next seven laps.  Hill passed both McAfee and Miles to lead three laps, before spinning. Hill recovered, passed Miles for second place and finished three seconds behind McAfee. Miles finished in third place, four seconds in back of Hill.
