Rick Stewart - Seven Second Love Affair
Clips taken from the legendary Drag Racing documentary. Featuring NHRA's Chief Starter Rick "The Iceman" Stewart.
1968 AA /FD Dragster "Stone Age Man" and Top Fuel Dragster "Blood Sweat & Nitro"
These are not for the faint of heart, look at that cockpit, seriously insane! Beginning as Mike Tingly's "Mistrial" AA/FD, "Stone Age Man" was based on an RCS chassis by Frank Huszar with full Tom Hanna bodywork and beautiful Bill Carter paintwork, with a blown and injected 392 Chrysler "Hemi" power. The car's unique name was courtesy of Frank Hedge, longtime friend who had lent George an old engine that was so old and durable that it must have come from the Stone Age. Following that engine's eventual failure, the legendary Ed Pink loaned "Hutch" one of his famous racing engines and provided tuning services, thanks to the urging of Pink's son Billy. At Las Vegas' Stardust International Raceway, "Stone Age Man" won the invitational Top Fuel meet in convincing form by defeating Rick Ramsey's "Howard Cams Rattler" with a 7.14 ET at 225.61 mph during the final-round shootout at night. One of the more famous dragster names in drag racing history, the Blood -- Sweat & Nitro Top Fuel dragster is the only surviving original Jim Davis chassis with a full aluminum body by the famous Jack Hagemann. Driver Gary Ritter terrorized the competition at drag strips like Famoso, Half Moon Bay, Lions, OCIR, Irwindale, Sears Point, Carlsbad, and Fresno. Fremont Drag Strip was the car's home track and Ritter took home his share of trophies.
