1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than

longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.
Nova Wheelie 2 at Byron Wheelstanding Competition
Nova does another wheelie & drags his bumper a little bit. ****The car gets
loose at the end, but he saves it just fine.**** I apologize that I do not
have any more video from this point. I had a camera glitch. This was all
the video that was recorded. This was at the World Power Wheelstanding
Competition in Byron IL, 2008.
