SoCal D3 LeMans Coupe concours podium, L-R Dale Yamashita 1st, Dennis Samson 2nd, Lee Hines 3rd
Dale Yamashita's Lola Coupe wins top honors today.
Dennis Samsons' Mirage was a close 2nd (The final judging was a toss-up as far as Dale or Dennis winning).
Lee Hines' Noose painted body was 3rd. Due to some body damage (not seen in this view) Lee's entry would have scored higher.
