A fantastic collection of programs, pit passes, and 1st place trophies from the Carrell Speedway Foreign Car Races held in Gardena, California during July and August 1949. It was in these races that Phil Hill captured his first sports car wins driving his supercharged MG TC. Both 1st place trophies are engraved with Phil Hill's name and the date of the race. These remarkable trophies represent the very beginning of Hill's illustrious career in sports car racing. Taller trophy: 5.5" x 26.5".
