Notes: Obtained photograph of "Millwee's Magic" 72 Hemi Cuda from John Millwee, now living in Springville, California. Photo is only known photo of car, was taken by unknown photographer. The car is pictured staged next to Sox and Martin during pro stock finals at 1971 Supernationals, Ontario, California. John tells me that his car was built by S&M and they had just delivered the car to California. The car was driven by Herb McCandless an employee of S&M at this race only, to demonstrate the car's capability. Geno Redd was to take over driving for the 1972 season. John says the car ran consistently quicker and faster than Ronnie Sox all weekend because it had been fitted with Lenco trans. Sox was still running a manual shifted 4-speed. John said the in final race, shown in the photo, Herb left on Ronnie, but the car slowed slightly at the top end allowing "The Boss" to take the win. Geno Redd totaled the car in testing the next day at OCIR and was fatally injured. Two other photos of this car have appeared on internet since this posting. I have recently obtained from John Milwee various receipts from the construction of the car as well as the time slips from Piedmont Dragstrip in Burlington, North Carolina for the first seven shakedown runs on the car driven by one of S&M's drivers, likely Herb McCandless, and one slip marked Geno's first run. - Ray Ahrens | Need to confirm best speed. Said to be 145, but that would be season's fastest. | John Millwee passed away August 28, 2017 in Springville, California.
