As extra info maybe, officially Don Lee Special.

The Mike Brannan Special that Clark is seen driving was actually the Don Lee Special, a Kurtis-Kraft 2000 Offy that had been built in 1948 as #319 by Frank Kurtis Link to "books.google.be"

all this race cars of the era had a xxx Special name and this usualy was from the sponsors or the driver


so it makes much more sense to put the constructor
