Notice the artwork on the track nose, and the number #48 instead of #348. The class destination is also C and not CL, as Don ran his roadster in the Lakester class due to 1949 SCTA rule changes. 1950 saw the Modified Roadster class introduced.[1] Photo from The Chuck and Joanna Quesnel Photo Collection.
