Nice review from Home Racing World : link


Background :
Jim Hurtubise was a racers racer. His storied career spanned decades when racing was in its formative years and safety was sometimes just an afterthought. In those years Jim raced sideways on dirt as well as wheel to wheel competition with racing legends on ultra high speed paved ovals. He busted knuckles turning wrenches and had considerable creative influence on design features of cars he raced, something you just do not see in today’s drivers. He survived a horrific fire at the Milwaukee mile and recovered to win the Atlanta 500 NASCAR Grand National race in 1966 in the Norm Nelson Plymouth. He raced one of the last front engine roadsters in the Indy 500 in 1968 and set a closed course world speed record of 191+ MPH in 1968 with that Mallard car at Daytona. His broad background and success in Sprints, Midgets and USAC Champ Cars served him well when racing in any venue and earned him admission to the Sprint Car Hall of Fame. His good natured approach to racing and life earned him multiple sportsmanship awards and admiration from the fans. His is a great grass roots up story and this car is a fitting tribute to at least a part of his storied career.
