With its Crawford chassis and Ford power, this Daytona Prototype is a textbook example of
a purpose-built race car. It weighs less than 2,200 pounds, is powered by a 600+ horsepower
engine and can reach speeds of nearly 200 mph. Is designed to withstand the grueling
punishment of racing flat out for 24 hours. The Grand American ROLEX 24 at Daytona International Speedway is America’s premier endurance racing event, and this Crawford/Ford competed there in 2006 driven by Academy Award winning actor Paul Newman, Sebastien Bordais, Cristiano DaMatta and Michael Brockman. Its sponsorship by the Disney Pixar animated feature film “Cars” and it’s amazing graphics made it the most memorable of the Daytona Prototypes at Daytona that year, and fans of the movie remember the driver Paul
Newman was also the voice of Doc Hudson, the 1951 Hudson Hornet in the movie.
