Footnotes

  • Powered by a pair of Miller straight-eights combined into a supercharged V16, Frank Lockhart designed and built the smallest-displacement car ever to make an attempt at the Land Speed Record at Daytona Beach. The Stutz Black Hawk he created ran its first run on Daytona's narrow sand beach and was a nearly fatal, failed attempt. In adverse weather conditions his car crashed into the ocean. He narrowly escaped drowning and was taken to a hospital suffering from severed tendons in one hand, shock and bad bruising, but two months later he was back for another attempt. On April 25, 1927, somewhere near the half mile mark, Lockhart's tire blew, leading to a tragic, violent crash and his immediate death.
