Herb McCandless Never Raced a 71 Duster for Buddy Martin. You will figure out why I put this on here later.

I know he drove the 70 Duster that won Pro Stock at Indy in 1970. But I also heard that car burnt up in a fire. Maybe they used another 70 Duster with a 71 grille. He has always been one of my top favorite racers of all time. I really enjoyed talking to him at Carlisle one year as he stopped in the middle of the showfield and took time to talk to me. He was really nice to me and a first class act in my book. Ron

Yeah I thought the 70 Duster was converted to a 71 and then shortly after it was destroyed in an accident after a race?

I'd like to know what the OP is all about, please. I've met & talked with Herb on several occasions; he's a gentleman and has a quick wit. Always a good time & great stories.

I know what this is about. The background topic of the original post is going to be good when the story REALLY breaks loose.

Herb and Gale Mortimer built the Demon for 1972. In 1971, Herb ran one of the Sox & Martin '70 cars that was updated to '71 trim.

I always thought Herb owned his 71 or 72 Demon the one that is getting shown now. But it does say on it : Dodge by Sox & Martin. Ron
