Ralph Deshon and Fred Koster drove a Crosley Hotshot to victory in the 6-hour Sam Collier Memorial Grand Prix of Endurance, the first autorace held at Sebring, Florida. It was also the first sportscar endurance race held in the United States. The little Crosley was able to defeat faster Ferraris, Jaguars, and others because the race was run under an Index of Performance handicapping system.
