In 1952 Johnny Mauro, Denver racer and Ferrari importer, bought a new model 375 Ferrari Grand Prix car and entered it in the Indy500 where it was a DNQ. Later that summer he entered it in the Pikes Peak hillclimb where he finished a rather dismal 10th. Not ready to give up, he then later entered it in the Denver 100 champ car race on the 1 mile Centenial Park where he promtly wadded it up in practice. Possibly the first and only time a Ferrari Grand Prix car ever graced a dirt oval in anger.
