    Can you envision the reaction of the other competitors.

    An army of 6 Mercury trucks arrive in the pits, and everyone else is probably using their family car to haul their race cars on a trailer.

    Paraphrasing Gene "unfair advantage".
    However, that is life and competition.

    I hope Mr. B is not trying to land on the other ramp in his descent, because it is time to bale because he is short of the runway.

    I don't think he ever won at Darlington, but I could be wrong. But his teams did win 52 races in 1955-56.
