By the 1974 season, the fuel crisis was in full swing. Revised rules in the Can-Am series required fuel economy below 3 miles per gallon (mpg), which was achieved by limiting the maximum capacity of the fuel tank. To deal with these fuel restrictions Shadow refitted the naturally aspirated 8.1L Chevrolet V8 engine, which through refinement of the fuel injection and its internal moving parts was able to develop close to 800 horsepower by the end of the season. Because Shadow was simultaneously competing in Formula 1, much of the suspension design was taken directly from the team's cars, adjusting it to the body dimensions.

Thousands of miles of testing and development paid off. Jackie Oliver drove the Shadow DN4 to overall victory in the first four races, beating McLarens, Porsches and Ferraris, and ultimately winning the championship.
