Jim, was this the car that A.J put on the pole for the 500 but it was found out it had Nitrous? I can't remember the year it happened.Pete

I believe that to be true Pete..the top three fastest qualifiers, .AJ Foyt, Darrell Waltrip and Dave Marcis are all disqualified for cheating. Cale Yarborough is caught in `77 and DK Ulrich is suspended the rest of the season in `78 for using nitrous. It's only when you get caught is it called cheating.
