You probably already know the it was entered in the race as car number 75. 
If not, does it help to know it?  Was this before people started using the 
Yenko serial number for the car number?

Subject:  Yenko Stinger History

I'm writing an article for the Show-Me Corvair Club newsletter concerning 
the participation of a '65 Corvair (presumably Monza, driven by Spurgeon May 
and Bobby Allison) and a Yenko Stinger in the February 1966 Daytona 
Continental 24-hour race.  The Stinger was sponsored by McMillan Ring Free 
Oil and driven by Art Riley and Flushing, NY, Chevrolet dealer Russ 
MacGrotty.  I checked the Yenko Stinger Archives online, MacGrotty is listed 
as the seller of a Stinger in mid-1966, but wasn't able to determine which 
YS he ran at Daytona.

Anyone out there know which car MacGrotty and Riley drove, and the car's 
current disposition/owner?  Thanks in advance.
