   Duke's car was a 1947 Hudson Hornet Coupe, very popular as stock racers in those days.
   The Hornet dominated stock car racing in the early-1950s.  Its 308 cu in (5.0 L) six-cylinder engine produced high torque at low RPM and could beat V-8s from other makes whose power advantage came only at much higher RPMs. There was no room on a quarter-mile race track with short straight-aways to get the V8 RPMs that high.
