1960 Montgomery SCCA Nationals
The Montgomery SCCA nationals had the promise of a big show.  Two Meister Brauser's, Hansgen's Birdcage, Constantine's nasty black Lister-Chev and Holbert and Penske in Porsche's.  It started great but one by one the big names fell leaving the spoils to the Maserati.  Grossmans Berlinetta was second and Vestal's Jim Forno's 550 Porsche 5th overall.  Holbert and Penske both blew cranks, but Roger
remembering how Black jack Brabham won the 1959 World Champs pushed his car over the finish line
to try and get points.  Heuer hit a pylon, Augie only had one wheel driving and Constantine was gone
early.  The two Berlinetta's put on a show that made us not care much - see it on page 2
