Remember That Badass Bullrun Daytona? It's Been Replaced With A Fusion

Illustration for article titled Remember That Badass Bullrun Daytona? Its Been Replaced With A Fusion

The flat-black bucket of badass that is the "Project ANGRIER" '69 Dodge Daytona replica, built to dominate this years Bullrun, has managed to throw snake-eyes only two days into the rally. For all the work that went into the car, a wheel failure has forced its retirement. But that hasn't stopped the driver from continuing on in the challenge — in a Ford Fusion rental car. We can't help but imagine the disappointment of going from rip-snorting rally dominator to staid family sedan that returns 25 MPG even while bouncing off the 111 MPH rev limiter. [Cardomain]

@Adamskiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiy: Seriously, I could understand it being hard to find the exact type of wheel he lost, but I would think any tire store should have something to fit that era American car.

A fresh set of black steelies is all he needed. Yeah... not the best option, but I'd rather drive a 500hp beast on some pedestrian rubber than run the race in a Fusion.
