The entry lists. I have
no information about who showed up, or who won, or if there actually was such
a race or any subsequent.
Maybe it was like the "Wrong-way Indy
Cars" at this track some years later, when they straightened Turn One a little
by moving it 120 feet west so a flying racecar wouldn't land in the pit road or
racing pits, then practiced, but elected to go with the usual clockwise direction.
What I heard was the folks in the starter's stand were instrumental in that decision.
I don't suppose it would have been too difficult to run a few laps in the
midgets, make some enlightened judgements, and move the show to one of the ovals.
It seems to me midget racers, maybe all oval racers, were used to showing up,
warming up, qualifying, and racing in pretty short order. Road racers strike me
as a little more deliberate, maybe a bit less ready to mix it up without some
kind of extended foreplay or mantra-chanting.
