Interesting. I wonder what sort of v-6 they used?

The factory Ford falcon with multiple carburetors couldn't get out of its own way in the compact NASCAR series. I guess Holman & Moody didn't like getting beat by a slant so, if you can't beat 'em join 'em.
The Valiant has to be a slant 6. I think the author Lee Holman was a kid or not even born when Holman & Moody joined the slant 6 family. He assumed it was a V6.

Never knew they raced these in the Carolinas also. Lots of miss-information as noted on the V6.
We know they raced it at Daytona based on these pictures.

Cool pics indeed.

I want to incorporate some of this racing history in ToadRacer when we get it on track at a Lemons race.

Mark, they were probably just lapping them for the first time. If it would have been the 2nd time around their doors would have been blown off!! :D :D

How long did that series actually last? Did it make it half a season?

I think maybe 2 seasons. I read that they raced in 59 at Continental Divide in CO I think. The Valiants did not race of course as they were not produced yet. Saab, Volvo, maybe Studebaker, etc. were raced.
