The wing was designed for the Daytona and Talladega turns. Buddy Baker stated, "Driving out of the turns he could feel the rear go loose but just as fast the cross wind caught the uprights and knocked the rear end straight coming out of the banks". Great for very high speed turns bad for the stretches. The Talladega Torino rear glass and pillars were far more sweeping than the Dodge and Plymouths which created far less drag but enough deck lid down force with the small spoiler to handle the turns well. They were able to out run the Chryslers on the stretches as a result.
Brandon-your article about the two NASCAR cars, Aaron Brown, and The Garage Shop, was very well written! I'm friends with those guys, and everyone of them is a very talented craftsman. The cars up close were spectacular, their attention to detail was incredable. Bobby would be proud.
