.. - Sponsored by Marathon Oil, Coca Cola and Prancing Horse farm  
.. - The reason for retirement was not the transmission but the fact that bolts holding drive shaft to the rear sheared under the tremendous torque being put out by the powerful Traco H&M motor was too much for the factory bolts. Unfortunately a lot of prep money was spent on the car and that small detail was overlooked.  
.. - When car came off track John Holman was present with a Sherriff and a seizure for "non paymnt" against KFW. Car was loaded on flatbed and taken back to NC on a mechanics lien. About 6 months later John Holman called RS (PHF) and a deal was made to buy back the car.  RS (PHF) paid $18,000 flew to NC and drove the car home on the highway with no heat and only rain tires open exhaust in a snowstorm.... Ron Spangler remembers "Iit was exciting. I nearly froze to death in the 400 miles trip"
