In 1966, for the first time ever, an American car company won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Ford GT40 dominated the competition and took home the championship. One of the greatest days in American racing history became one of the most controversial. A difference of eight meters would change the history books and become a day that racing legends Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles, and Bruce McLaren would never forget. The controversy as to who ultimately won this epic battle was discussed.
