Cover Photo: This picture tells the story of the 50-mile national championship at Springfield. Joe Leonard (1), Everett Brashear (25), and Dick Klamfoth (2) exchanged the lead so many times it must have been as confusing to them as we know it was to the spectators. Not knowing who would come out of the fourth corner first kept everyone on their toes for the full 50 laps. The pace was so fast, the winning time clipped four minutes, 38.10 seconds from the old record, or a little better than five seconds average per lap faster. The race took only a little over 34 minutes to run, but it will be talked about for years and never forgotten.
