Everyone knows the story but there is an aspect that I have always wondered about. Some of the cars came back to Syracuse with significant modifications. The Valero 60 with Buzzie, Brightbill's 19 and many others in the field.
Here is the question. We know Gary ran away with it, but did the mods on any of the other cars make an improvement? Did any of those cars come to life and run better lap times, handle better, and so on?
Curious to know if anyone ever looked at that aspect of the race.
