Yunick, "Smokey" Henry (USA)

b 25/05/1923 (Philadelphia) - d 09/05/2001 (Daytona Beach)


Legendary NASCAR racing mechanic, who also entered cars in the Indy 500. Jim Rathman won Indy in 1960 in a car Yunick helped prepare, and Rathman's entry in 1961 was owned by Yunick. Note that his name and date of birth aren't actually properly known. Smokey used the date off a birth certificate given to him by a priest in Philadelphia, and at the age of 16 was told "your name is Henry, Howard or Gregory, take your pick."
Yunick's ways around NASCAR rules are legendary. He built the 7/8th scale Chevelle that confounded officials at Daytona and ushered in the body templates now used in NASCAR. One time he drove his race car away from a late night scrutineering teardown at Daytona, despite officials having removed the petrol tank in search of where Smokey had been hiding additional fuel! 
Yunick enlisted in the Army Air Corps early in World War II, flying B17 bombers in Africa, Europe and in the Pacific, caming out of the service a first lieutenant.
