Dr. Bostyan contested the second half of the 1974 season, taking the SE Division A-Production Championship and later blowing the engine at the SCCA runoffs. IMSA Camel GT races followed in 1975, and at the 1976 IMSA Sebring 12 Hours, 'Doc' co-drove with Don Yenko and Jerry Thompson, qualifying seventh.
Other races included the 1977 12 Hours of Sebring and Paul Revere 250 at Daytona, the 1978 24 Hours of Daytona and again the Sebring 12 hours, where Yenko blew the engine, which he replaced with a new unit from Bill King Racing Engines, the engine supplier to the Owens-Corning team, which remains with the car today. The wide-body flares and red repaint are circa 1980-1981.
In 2012, this car was offered for sale at the Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $75,000 - $125,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for $37,400 inclusive of buyer's premium.
