Relive one of the strangest Can-Am races of the era.
Relive what one of the entrants called, “…one of the craziest races I’ve ever been in!” On September 13, 1970, the mighty McLaren team came to the brand-new Road Atlanta track to add to their record of 19 straight Can-Am victories. There, for only its second race, was the innovative new Chaparral 2J “Sucker Car,” driven by “Quick Vic” Elford to break this string. Few of the other competitors were given much of a chance to win. What transpired that day has become motor racing lore!
