It was based on the tub of the aborted Indy project. Two F5000 races: Minnesota Grand Prix (US R7 Brainerd - 15 August 1971) qualified 21st of 28, retired after 19 laps of heat 1 (engine) and finished 14th of 15 finishers in heat 2 for 22nd overall; Lime Rock Grand Prix (US R8 Lime Rock - 06 September 1971) qualified 13th and wrecked on the first lap.
There's a couple of pictures here. No decent shots though.

I read somewhere that they "ran at a furious pace and caught and ate snakes" (possibly Cobras?)
