In September 1969 an odd-looking Dodge rumbled onto the track for NASCAR's first-ever Talladega 500. It's sky-high rear wing made it stand out like a biplane amongst the other cars in the field
Plymouth brought its own winged car to the party a little later. Using the Charger's B-body cousin, the Road Runner, Plymouth unveiled the newly-christened Superbird at the 1970 Daytona 500.
While the new "Winged Warriors" had an unorthodox profile and probably received some confused looks from the spectators, everything made sense once the green flag dropped. And it wasn't long before a Charger Daytona became the first car to break NASCAR's 200 mph barrier.
In the hands of drivers like Richard Petty and Bobby Isaac, the Superbird and its winged counterpart, the Daytona, went on to dominate the NASCAR racing circuit, flying high above the competition.
