He only had the top 5 in the main event, which were posted earlier.

Here are the cars he lists in the main.

Shackleford, Booker, Wallard, Andres, Cooney? (his name was crossed out), Devore, Byron, Stine, Goss, Rodgers, Lux, Verbely

Perhaps an article from NSSN or ISN would be more help.

there was a guy selling an old NSSN (think that's what it was) collection one at a time on ebay which included some from 1946. if i can find his listings i'll post. i sent him a message to see if he had the week or 2 after the SG event but he did not.
My OPINIONS are just that and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of anyone or any track I am associated with!
