I remember Kenny saying I am going a second faster than I ever have anywhere , but I am still a second slower than the fast cars that are winning. Then he broke his arm.

WOW!! Those are great photos. I'm so glad someone has kept, and restored this fine racer. It really is a tribute to a great driver as well.

So what was the reason for taking the left exhaust forward?

Looks like really small brakes up front as well, including the left front.


Facing the exhaust forward and up gave free downforce on the front end. Dragsters have taken advantage of this forever.

having the ehaust forward was also to help keep heat off the tires

MY thought was always to keep heat off the oil tank since it was only the left side, but that is a very interesting idea with the down force to plant the left front. :thumbright:
