Default Re: Coupe faces 1962

Parrot, You are correct, it was my oversight not including the time. He set this record on Aug. 6, 1961 breaking his previous record of 14.04. I remember possibly the week after the record was set, annoucer Reed Walker being seemingly amazed talking about it as he called it "The mystical, magical 13 second bracket." 13.99 really was a milestone.

Parrot, I think you and I talked at the racer's reunion, about another Hudson that belonged to the Palmer's but I couldn't remember the drivers name. It was Bob "Bushy" Busheff in 1962. The picture was in the program Aug. 19, 1962 and timed at 14.46. The car was #12.
