Over the years the event has attracted considerable interest. In 1956 the racing driver Carroll Shelby won the event in an Indianapolis specification 4.5-litre Ferrari 375 Grand Prix car in a time of 10:21.8 sec.   

This year Higgins hit a rock which tore off his left rear wheel.  This caused his car to pirouette and plummet 50 feet off the side of the road.
