The VW hauler at 6:22! It looks like it's been shortened, no?

Porsche 1-6!! Mackie will be in a puddle...
Love the tongue work of our hero...maybe he forgot to hydrate.
Wonder if the two-up car was a camera car or driver under observation?

There are a number of tipoffs during the film, but the clincher is that the winner was Harry Blanchard in a Porsche. Blanchard won the June Sprints in 1959.
Not Chad's error; the clip is captioned erroneously on the web site.

This footage is not only the 1959 edition of the June Sprints, it is a combination of the 1959 June Sprints and the September 1959 500 Miles.
The Cunningham Listers did not participate in the June Sprints.
