Jim Kimberly -- Ferrari 166 After Rollover

Kimberly's Ferrari 166 after a rollover accident in Turn 3.

From Michael T. Lynch, William Edgar, and Ron Parravano's "American Sports Car Racing in the 1950s" page 51:

"A fabulous race developed between Pollack, Jack Armstrong's Allard-Cadillac, Phil Hill, and Jim Kimberly's Ferrari 166. Pollack, Hill, and Armstrong all led during the first 20 laps (of 48 scheduled) with Kimberly also in sight of the leaders. Then Kimberly, who had passed Hill for third, rolled the Ferrari in the fast Turn 3 sweeper.  He emerged, unscathed, and was given a kiss by a very relieved Ginger Rogers."

Can anyone identify the gentlemen in the photo?    Another look at the ex-Kimberly Ferrari racing at the "Wine Country Classic" held at Sears Point (Infineon) Raceway June 3-4-5, 2005.
