THESE "SUPER TURBO - FIRES" WERE NOTORIOUS ON THE RACE TRACKS. DAYTONA 500. THEY WON SO MANY RACES IN 1957 THAT FUEL INJECTION WAS BANNED FROM THE END OF '57 TIL 2012!

" The “Ram Jet” Rochester mechanical continuous-port injection system actually wasn’t designed by Rochester. It was the brainchild of a team of GM engineers who undoubtedly received encouragement from Zora Arkus-Duntov and Ed Cole. The prospect of exploiting the benefits of fuel injection in increasing both performance and economy must have seemed tantalizing to them–and the result of their work certainly achieved those goals."  :-)

During the 1957 season, Baker made 40 starts and led all drivers with ten wins and poles. He went on to take the championship title that year, becoming the first driver to win back-to-back NASCAR Championships.

The 1957 Chevy also won 26 NASCAR "convertible races," which was more wins than any other make.

NASCAR BANS FUEL INJECTED CARS

The dominance of the 1957 Chevrolet prompted NASCAR's ban on fuel-injected cars. In April of 1957, NASCAR rewrote the rules to establish a four-barrel carburetor-only rule. The fuel-injection ban would last until the Generation-Six cars of 2012
