Danica will have a bad race and blame it on someone else.

I haven’t kept up with Nascar but remember when I was in high school in the mid to early 60s.

It was Ford vs Mopar. Daytona was the big one. I can remember when the 426 came out and Plymouth finished something like 1-2-3. All the Ford guys were devastated.

The Ford 427 SOHC was banned from Nascar. The Hemis wouldn’t have stood a chance against them.

Is that the engine used in the Ford GT?

I had a professor in college who raced Nash Healys back in the day. He may have even driven in Le mans but I can’t remember for sure.

If you're talking the new Ford GT from a few years back, no. That is the newer modular motor.

The GT 40 ran the 427 side oiler, which head a wedge type head.

The SOHC was based on the FE block like the side oiler but had HUGE heads that had a single cam in each head.


Here is a 427 side oiler

Notice the difference in head size.

No I was talking about the ones used in 1964 and that era.

Why was the single overhead cam version banned by Nascar? Was it not available on production cars?

This is the Ford GT40. The GT40 won Le Mans in '66-68 or '69.

The engine made it into just enough production cars.
Chrysler pushed Nascar to ban it. I'm not sure on what grounds though. About the only one I heard was that it would push speeds to high. I've looked around to see if anyone has put a SOHC in a GT40. I've read of maybe a couple of people talking about it, but haven't seen anything definitive.

Its a BIG engine, in a not very big engine compartment.

It would be a beast of a car.

THE GLOVES ARE OFF!!!

Stewart: Richard Petty should race Danica:

During the first of two PRN Fast Talk Shows at Outback Steakhouse in Daytona with Doug Rice and Mark Garrow, Tony Stewart made it very clear how he feels about the negative remarks Richard Petty made recently about Danica Patrick. "I told her she should challenge Richard to a heads up race," said Stewart. "I think that would pretty much settle it once and for all, maybe get him to shut up a little bit too. He drove in an era when he had cars that were superior to what everybody else was running a lot. I think he forgets that, that NASCAR has changed a lot since he was a driver and how hard it really is now." Stewart added, "I will supply the cars, I don't care. If he wants to race her I'll make sure they have exactly the same set-up in the car and give him a chance. He can drive one of my 14 cars I don't care." It was then suggested if Danica ever won a race that she should ask Petty to autograph the checkered flag. Stewart, however, had another suggestion. "If I were her I'd take it over and cram it up his (bleep)...If it were me, that's just me." The second and final PRN Fast Talk show from the Daytona Outback Steakhouse will take place Thursday from 12-1 with Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick the special guests. Both shows can be heard at goprn.com.(PRN)(2-20-2014)

How are pit stall's chosen?

By qualifying results, the 1st choose their stall and so on.

If a car/driver has to go to the rear of the field before the start of the race due to driver change, backup car, engine/transmission change, etc they do NOT lose their pit stall selection.

Hell, I don’t even know how to spell HTML, let alone use it!

The pic is from Genovese’s Italian Cafe in Daytona Beach Shores. I’m always on the hunt for a good pie, and that one hit the right notes!

Guess I was wrong. Dillon was leading the first race, Jr just took hte lead.

Stewart started at the back with Danica because of engine change. He’s already moved to 14.
