A Nascar history buff thought that since the wagon has a NASCAR logo on the door, it was most likely a track vehicle used to keep the field of cars in place during only the "warm-up" laps.


That would make complete sense. Way more sense than trying to figure out why somebody was racing in a Dodge wagon. I know they were popular in the 1960's as drag cars because of the extra weight over the rear wheels for traction but as a roundy-roundy turn left car, it would make for some interesting (scary) polar moment of inertia situations.
