    Kerry,

    No he wasn't drafting and he never had the regular windshield. He had the small, low one that just sets in front of the driver. Several times that car hit over 185. There may be some...

    Kerry,

    In 1966 Dick Smith hit 198.6 MPH in his 1966 427 Cobra at a Daytona race. I have seen the car several times since he passed and it was at auction out here a few years back.
