I saw Maynard race at Trenton and at Daytona. Thought for sure he couldn't have survived the big wreck he had in the early 70's coming off the 2nd turn at Daytona. He did... And look at all that he accomplished as a racer and as a designer/car builder/businessman from then on.
His equipment was always the best looking... Always looked like he was innovating... But unlike others who sometimes came to the track with show pieces that missed the mark, Maynard's creations worked.
My condolences to the friends and family of Maynard Troyer.
