What Everybody Ought To Know About The Dodge Charger Daytona

#88 Dodge Charger DaytonaIn early January we were talking about 200mph qualifying runs and looking at the top 30 all-time qualifying speeds in NASCAR history.

I had come along a particular site, read some information, snagged a photo (crediting them) and we moved on to Daytona.

A few weeks ago, I received an email from Greg Kwiatkowski.

Who’s he?

Well, it turns out he is one interesting guy that knows a thing or two (hundred) about going fast.

He’s also pretty fond of the Dodge Charger Daytona.

And, oh yeah, he owns the original ‘high speed’ #88 Dodge Charger Daytona that Buddy Baker drove to a closed course record of 200.447 MPH on March 24, 1970 at Alabama International Motor Speedway.

The incredible story of how Greg came to locate the car, the condition it was in and what it took to now call it his own is detailed in The Real #88 Chrysler Engineering Daytona!.

To say I was pretty stoked when I received Greg’s email is an understatement.

If the mystique of the Dodge Charger Daytona spellbinds you, then a gentlemen named, Ken Noffsinger, has built the ultimate site for you called Aero Warriors.

I highly recommend a visit.”
