Those are some beefy Firestones on that '60 Dodge, Danny. I like it.

Dave --
That looks like the '56 Fury that was quite a sensation at the 1956 Speed Week at Daytona. It wasn't absolutely stock, but with two four-barrel carbs, a special cam, headers, and 10-1 compression it hit an unofficial 149.124 MPH, which was faster than all the rest of the cars there, including the 300B at 139.4. In fact, it was said at the time that even a stock optioned Fury would catch a 300 if the latter just hiccuped!
Too bad Plymouth's brass wanted to project an image of a good family car as they never really publicized nor very intensely pursued the performance aspect. And "Fury" is such a great name for a performance car!

Here is "Ron" and his 55 Belvedere at the Gambler's Run road race out of Elko Nevada in 2005. The car was chopped with lots of owner build fiberglass, a 360, and 4 speed automatic. I think other than 170mph, it also ran a 10-something quarter mile. That is my 72 Charger parked next to it.

I would like to know more about this (seems to be a Dayton Beach race? West Palm Beach??). I think Tim Flock is driving the 300 in the middle. Probably a 56 D500-1 on the left (Lee Petty?) but what is up with the 56 Wagon?

It looks like a different team because even though it is about the same color, the writing on it is different. In the background, behind the mercs are 2 other Dodges and a Chrysler 300

Could the wagon be some kind of official car?

Pace car?

All the other rows are two abreast, that row has three cars including the wagon. Lining up for a rolling start, perhaps?

Agree. The D500 on the left and the 300"A" in the middle are both Team Kiefhaefer. The wagon (?). The two Dodges in the background appear to be 55s based on the location of the Dodge medallion on the hood.

This is the best I could find. Tim Flock in "300A", Fonty Flock in "500B", Lee Petty 42 down there in 12th and Bill Blair in the Joe Blair Dodge (No. 5). This is the list of the cars that were running at the end of the race.

The wagon (?). The two Dodges in the background appear to be 55s based on the location of the Dodge medallion on the hood.


===================================================

55 Dodges have a single, centered "spike" on the hood trim. 56 had two, as seen
on all Dodges present in this photo.

"These two pictures are from the 1955 Beach Race at Daytona. On the left is the pace lap, and on the right is lap one. Notice how smooth the sand is in the turns (that won't last long) and also what a big crowd they had. The pole sitter was Tim Flock alongside Lee Petty. They finished 1-2. They are followed here by Dick Rathman, Fireball Roberts, Dick Joslin, and Junior Johnson. At the checkers Ray Duhigg finished third, followed by Curtis Turner and Fonty Flock."

No wagon in the 1955 race.

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.
