Return to Lions Drag Strip Long Beach California 2008
This is the third year of featuring restored dragsters that have run the 1320' Lions Drag Strip in its hey day... This video, typical of going to a drag strip, despite John Ewald telling everyone to stand back, you never get to see much when they display cars this way. Typical of the drag strip, all the vehicles require too much support, they stand around the car and block the view.... At the CHRR in Bakersfield, the Cacklefest is blocked by a bunch of folks standing at the concrete wall on the track blocking the view to the grand stands as if the concrete barrier wasn't enough....I have been going to the drags since I was a youngster and it seems the problem is no one can stay seated for a run and your typical day at the drags to this day takes on a Jack in the Box atmosphere.... I guess that is the way it is.....Anyway, the City of Long Beach Chamber of Commerce puts on a nice event and I hope it continues into the future.





"Big Daddy" Don Garlits breaks 270 mph barrier; 1986 Gatornationals
Don Garlits' record breaking run of 272 mph to earn him the distinction of being the 1st to break 270 mph in NHRA Drag Racing, while defeating former NFL Quarterback Dan Pastorini in the semis of Top Fuel at the 1986 Gatornationals, and without a doubt, this was THE race of the day. Kids, this is why they will forever call him "BIG DADDY"
