Weekend Heroes: 4rd Running Pomona Fairgrounds

1957 4rd Running Pomona Fairgrounds

About two laps before the end of the race on Sunday the gas line broke and the fumes were very distracting, but Harry finished the race. He finished both days races for production cars over 2700cc in fourth position. The black Corvette on Harry’s right with starting #283 was Andrew Porterfield’s. This was the first time that the Pomona races were run counterclockwise as a safety measure for both drivers and spectators.
