Smokey had this to say about his 1968 run-in with NASCAR inspecters over his infamous black and gold #13 Chevelle...
"This story has been told countless times, but not very accurately. I donít know whether itís worth wrecking the myth that surrounds it. Most versions have me driving my Chevelle race car out of Daytona Speedway while the gas tank was laying on the ground".
"There was an argument over fuel, and I did drive the car from the track to my garage with no gas tank. Whether or not I had a gas tank didnít matter, because that car had an illegal 11-foot fuel line with a 2-inch hole in it that held 6 gallons of gasoline. I could have driven to Jacksonville 90 miles away with the fuel in the line". The incident prompted NASCAR to change the fuel line opening to 3/8 inch.
rumor also has it the car was a 7/8 scale replica of a full sized Chevelle!
