Racing against a Cooper Monaco (#44).  Why are they driving clockwise?

In 1962 they used to run SCCA Regional and National races clockwise at the Speedway. This allowed them to utilize the infield course and part of the high banks but not all of the high banks. Some thought that having the small SCCA sports cars going flat out on the full high banked course was a recipe for trouble.
