#71 Dodge Charger Daytona – The Game Changer!

While Chrysler had the horsepower relying on the Mighty HEMI engine that wasn’t enough to beat the Talladegas and engineers had to think outside the box in order to dominate the NASCAR tracks. Improving the aerodynamics was the key and the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona was born to change NASCAR forever.

The #71 Dodge Charger Daytona was raced by the K&K Insurance team and Bobby Issac of course who won the 1970 Championship, but never became very popular as he didn’t like giving interviews and passed away 7 years later. Then the K&K 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona received some mods and broke 28 records at the Bonneville Salt Flats and went back to NASCAR for a while.
