1959 - Columbus Motor Speedway - First Winged Racecar - Columbus, OH
This 1959 footage from Columbus Motor Speedway depicts a handful of
Winged race cars including the first race car to EVER utilize an
inverted airfoil to increase downforce along with cornering speed. The
white #910 was driven by the legendary Jim Cushman who debuted it at the
central Ohio oval in 1958. By the time the footage was shot in the fall
of 1959, the famous #910 was joined by several Winged Cars. Winner of
this season championship contest was another legend; Jack Bowsher.
Thanks to Tiny Snider for this great footage.
