* The Why Worry driven by Bill Cantrell flipped in the second heat and was unable to continue. The race was awarded to Mercury driven by Marion Cooper allegedly due to her lower time. But since this was clearly not the case. Mercury probably took the victory by default since her competition was unable to continue.
