The legend of Smokey Yunick is carried out with this 1:18 scale diecast replica. Sleek black and gold graphics and No. 11 on the side lure you in, but it’s the history behind this racecar that holds attention. The Grand Touring Series was the highlight of Saturday night back before NASCAR's Nationwide and Busch series, and pony cars were all the rage for smaller-scale racers who dreamed of the Big League. The Smokey Yunick-prepared 1969 Mustang blazed a trail at the touring race at Talladega with Bunkie Blackburn behind the wheel, making a 177 mph lap to nab the pole. Blackburn was a blur as he lapped the field, not once but twice, in the main event before dropping out due to a faulty heat treated rocker arm in the motor. Although the car was never raced again in the Grand Touring Series, the legend of its debut was never forgotten.
