Looks to be the 1954 M-S race. Bobby Johns (7-A) finished 15th, Johnny Thompson (222) finished 43rd, and Al Briggs (24) finished 52nd. .........Jack

Jack, We knew Al Briggs as he was from Lake Worth, Fla. and raced at our home track, Palm Beach Speedway.Tragically Al was killed the following year 1955 at Daytona in a fiery crash. He was badly burned and died from the burns. He had built a new car to run at the Beach and he was very proud of it. He did not have the funds to build a front running car but he was there, PBS, every week doing what he loved to do. Race.
