Recently, the big guns returned to where they never were. When these gun fighters were shooting it out on the Super Speedways in 1969 the Texas Motor Speedway did not exist. The Dodge Daytona, Plymouth Superbird, Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II were the aero cars that dominated the sport back in the day. They were never able to turn a wheel at this speedway until recently.
Marty Burke, Team Member in the Talladega Spoiler Registry, reports that he recently took his Talladega and Spoiler II out to play with a couple of Mopars on the asphalt at Texas Motor Speedway for the cameras of Motor Trend Classic. It was a long day of play and hard work.
How hard can work be when you have four beautiful cars like this running at speeds over 100 MPH and have one of the more respected magazine franchises taking pictures of your car? This was a once in a life time event for any gearhead.
