LeeRoy Yarbrough had a helluva year in 1969. He started 30 of the 54 races and won 7 times. That includes winning the Daytona 500, Southern 500, and World 600 - something no other driver has done in a single year.

To build his car I used Pattos Place decals and Tamiya paints. I have a whole bunch of Torinos, Dodge Charger 500s, a Dodge Coronet, and a couple Charger Daytonas and plan on building a whole field of late 60's aero cars.
