It is so much fun when you hear about some wild car out there in the hinter lands that sounds to good to be true and then you see it for yourself and it is better! When we went to the Ford Talladega Family Reunion I knew a couple of NASCAR Talladegas would be there but was pleasantly surprised to find a drag car there in Spoiler II skin! It was Randy Dolensek’s 1969 Spoiler II in dark green with 600 cubic inch of power. It can do 8:05 seconds (for a quarter mile) at a speed of 172 miles per hour.
Randy stated that when he switched from the standard Cyclone “W” nose to the more aerodynamic Spoiler II nose it made an improvement of several miles per hour in the quarter mile. We know from history that the nose did wonders on the NASCAR Super Speedway but in the quarter mile…wow.
Randy has been drag racing up in the Wisconsin area since he was 15 and it has always been in a Mercury Cyclone. Now 50, Randy is better than ever and so is the Cyclone!
