1969 ARRC at Daytona - Jack Scoville's CP and DP Datsun 2000s
ARRC 1969 - Jack Scoville's two Datsun 2000s caused some consternation when both cars were seen sporting the same race number. Jack remembers:
"We did get in trouble with the tech inspection crew before the race. They thought that we were doing something wrong in that we took both the C Production and the D Production car to Daytona but we were not sure which one to race. We could have changed the carbs and cylinder head and raced either in D Production. Somewhere along the line the C Production car was numbered '6' and the D Production car '16'. If I remember right we actually went down to practice with both numbered '61'. We ultimately peeled the '1' off one car and switched the numbers on the other. That was when they impounded both cars, measured the track, measured the frame and really got nasty with us."
For more quotes from Jack see the Jack Scoville interview, and the Jack Scoville pages.
