NASCAR Chrysler 300s

I took this picture at Bass Pro Shop across the street from the Daytona Speedway grandstand. The old beach - road course location was used until Daytona International Speedway was built in 1959. Mercury was involved with NASCAR from 1952-56 seasons. Ray Fox died a couple of years ago about age 95. He was an engine builder who’s shop was next to Smokey Yunick’s and Fish Carburetor Co. He built some engines for Kiekhaefer.

Here's one in color of the winning car? The Chrysler 300 was the first "muscle car".

Let's fix it now - before we launch the boat.
