Yeah, as insane as it sounds, someone raced a Tucker in a NASCAR race back in 1950. We were alerted to this posting over at Hemmings and just had to share it.
The story of the Tucker of course was short lived with only 51 cars (50 plus a prototype) being produced before the company went belly up. Make sure you read some of the reader replies to this item at the bottom of the page as those guys actually figure out which of the uber-rare cars was doing dirt-track duty.
Pretty wild stuff indeed.
