In the Shoebox Shootout, Jim Leinart came out on top in his '55 210 sedan. Leinart's car has a long and storied racing history. The original owner was habitual drag racer Bill Alexander, who bought the '55 new, and dedicated it to drag racing starting in 1956. A factory Glacier Blue/Skyline Blue car, Alexander raced the '55 as the "Blue Goose," most of the time with a four-speed trans. Years later the car was converted to big-block power, painted red, and renamed "Goose Gone Red" until the car was parked in the mid-'80s. Five years ago, Leinart bought it from Alexander's brother, and has raced it ever since.
