From 1950-56 The "Del Monte Trophy" was held on the twisty, leafy, and very narrow town roads in Pebble Beach, California.  Although the course was always tight and twisty with tall Cypress trees hemming in the track on either side, accidents were scarce and relatively uneventful. The exception came in 1956 when Ernie McAfee (no relation to fellow racer Jack McAfee) fatally slammed his Ferrari into a tree. This spelled the end of the popular Pebble Beach Road Races, although it was the genesis of Laguna Seca, its modern-day successor. Blending interviews with racers and incredible footage of the events, the film recalls the glories of this oft forgotten race with a video archive of its history.
