Chuck Horvath’s Damn Yankee is a 1977 Chevrolet Vega (Ken Cox Style) body on a 125 inch Simpson chassis.

Best ET: 6.89 sec Best MPH: 198 mph
This car was original built in the late 70’s to run as a BB/FC. The sponsorship deal fell apart and the car was put in a barn until it went up for sell in 1998, when the Horvath’s saw it for sell in a local Auto RV Trading magazine.
The paint and lettering was applied by Brad Horvath. This is truly a family affair. Several of the grand kids run junior dragsters and hope to step up some day.
