After the insurance company sold the Spyder’s remains, pieces of the car went to racers, William Eschrich and Troy McHenry. In October 1956, both racers faced off at the Pomona Sports Car Races. Eschrich slid off of the track and was injured. McHenry lost control of his own Spyder and was killed when he hit a tree.
