Dart Statistics

In 1967, the Dart entered the Sports Car Club of America’s (SCCA) new Sedan Class racing series. For racing in this series, the compact cars, which included Ford Falcons and Plymouth Barracudas as well as foreign makes, were prepared like stock cars on the NASCAR Grand National circuit. “Baby Grands” was the nickname coined for these cars. Darts were powered by the four-barrel 273 V-8 and were equipped with roll cages and fifteen-inch wheels with fat tires. Bob Tullius, widely known for his Quaker State Motor Oil Group “44”-marked cars, was one of the first to drive the Dodge Dart in the sedan class, and with notable success.
