Jim Herlinger of Portola Valley CA finished 4th in the 4200cc. flathead Mercury V8 powered 1952 Baldwin Special.
Chris Hart of Sheffield, UK drove the Manning Special to 5th place.  This veteran sports/racer, also powered by a flathead Mercury V8 with a larger displacement of 4588cc, was built in 1952 by Wally Chapman of Schaghticote NY from blueprints supplied by Chuck Manning.
