#11 1969 Boss 302 Trans Am Mustang - Smokey Yunick

Before Nascar's Nationwide and Busch series existed, The Grand Touring Series was the under card Saturday night racing series. Featuring pony cars, it catered to the self funded racers who were looking for a shot at the big time. While the Grand National Series stars walked away for the weekend, the GT racers were still eager to race. One of the most famous cars to compete in the Grand Touring Series was this Smokey Yunick prepared ' 69 Mustang. During qualifying for the touring race at Talladega Speedway, Smokey and a young up and coming driver named Bunkie Blackburn scorched the course with a lap of 177 mph to take the pole. When the race began, Blackburn quickly lapped the entire field once and then again! However they had to drop out of the race due to a faulty heat treated rocker arm in the motor. The car was never raced again in the Touring Series, sealing the lure around its amazing debut and finish.
