With backing from Dodge and Hurst, Fox installed a 6-71 blower, Hilborn injector, and driver Lee Roy Yarbrough for a successful Daytona International Speedway assault on the closed-course world-record of 181.561 mph set by Art Malone

They took it to the same track in 1961 with a highly modified, fuel-burning, winged Indy roadster. Yarbrough’s top straightaway speed of approximately 225 mph netted a record lap of 181.818, on gasoline, on a windy February day.

bug catcher, formed fiberglass hod... and racing stripes. No joke, 225 mph
