The winner was Milt Marion in a Ford V-8. The prize was $5,000. Among the drivers were Indy winner Bill Cummings; dirt track champions Bob Sall, Doc Mackenzie and ben Shaw; Major Goldie Gardner; Miles and Sam Collier; and Bill France.
Marions engine had no gaskets; rather it was held together by Permatex Form-A-Gasket-1 and Form-A-Gasket-2, to prove that the engine could hold together only with Permatex products.
