June 24 1962 - Dave MacDonald back at Riverside Raceway in his '62 Corvette. This SCCA sanctioned event was run on the shortened
2.5 mile track layout where drivers went thru turn 7 to turn 8 and then to a shortened back straight. This photo is from Oct 1963 but you
can see the long course used to run NASCAR events. The big stockers were directed out of turn 6 and into a short chute over to turn 8
(top of this photo). and then to an elongated back straight. This change added a tenth mile to the overall length of the course
