Nascar Fame[edit]

During 1952 Hornets driven by Marshall Teague, Herb Thomas and Tim Flock won 27 NASCAR races driving for the Hudson team. In AAA racing, Teague drove a stock Hornet that he called the Fabulous Hudson Hornet to 14 wins during the season. This brought the Hornet's season record to 40 wins in 48 events, a winning percentage of 83%, a remarkable feat for a six-cylinder car.

It seems that something is wrong : 27 + 14 = 41, and 41 / 48 = 85,4%. Manchot 12:53, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Good observation! However, the "statistics" are repeated here as they were given in the original citation. It would be good to find a better reference for this racing record! CZmarlin (talk) 15:34, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
