Marshall Teague won the first NASCAR Grand National event on the US West Coast. Driving his Hudson Hornet, Teague led all 200 laps at Carrell Speedway in Gardena, California. Frank Mundy drove a rental car to an 11th-place finish, winning $25. Mundy waited until after dark to return the car so the attendant wouldn't notice the bald tires.
