    Quick recap...
    - Dodge creates the Daytona version of the Charger for high-speed NASCAR tracks for 1969.
    - Petty, a contracted "Plymouth" driver, knows his non-aero Road Runner will be at a disadvantage, and asks Mopar to let him run the Dodge Daytona at the high-speed tracks. Mopar says no. He either runs Plymouth, or he gets no factory funding.
    - Petty "walks across the street" to Ford and runs their aerodynamic Torino Talladega with factory funding for 1969, winning a few races, embarrassing Mopar. (Also, as a sidenote, Ford supporting Petty rather riled their long-time factory team Holman-Moody; some could argue that partnership was irreparably fractured)
    - Mopar comes crawling back, begging Petty to "return to the fold" for 1970, he stipulates he either gets to run the Daytona with factory funding, or a Plymouth with similar aerodynamics.
    - Mopar cobbles together the Superbird, which is essentially the Road Runner, but with Charger-front fenders grafted on, a Daytona nose (with different paint/decals to differentiate it) and a slightly differently-angled wing. Petty returns.

    Unfortunately, Mopar was in far worse financial shape 8 years later, when all they could offer Petty was the Magnum, which had "dump truck aerodynamics", and Petty never drove a Mopar again, after going winless in '78.
