Bobby Isaac's 1969 Dodge Daytona was a dominating force from its first few laps on the race track all the way through its retirement. In its debut in the third race of the 1969 season, Isaac qualified in the top-10, and things only got better from there. In the second 125-mile qualifying race prior to the Daytona 500 Isaac, who had qualified second, won with an average speed of over 151 mph.
