Rose finally got full credit for a victory after his relief role in 1941 but not without controversy. Rose went by his teammate Bill Holland with eight laps to go, with Holland believing he still had a full lap in hand on second place. Rose also ignored orders from the team to slow down to conserve his equipment, a warning that Holland heeded.
