Maximum Performance gives you the full details on Chrysler’s 1960’s-era drag racing history, when they revolutionized the sport with top drivers, monster engines, and experimental cars.
Since the early days of racing, Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth have dominated drag strips and race tracks. In 1955 alone, Chrysler 300s won 37 major stock car races and clinched both the NASCAR and AAA stock car championships.
