Pictures and movies that I took of some Fuel Altereds back in the '60s. The most evil handling cars known to man, the fuel altereds were banned by NHRA over 30 years ago. I was fortunate to get to see and photograph these beasts in action. If you are interested in the history of these legendary vehicles, check out these websites. They have hundreds of pictures (much better than mine) and stories of these brave men and their machines.
For the soundtrack I'm jammin on Bad Company's Gone Gone Gone. I hope you like it! Thanks for watching!
WFAN11 - World Fuel Altered Nationals 2011
The 2011 World Fuel Altered Nationals in Eddyville, Iowa was yet again
another successful annual event with organizer Scott Gaulter (owner of the
Nitro Madness machine) doing an amazing job once again. I bring some of the
craziest fuel altereds in the Midwest to the event, including Nitro
Madness, Sundown, Harold Thompson Jr, Purple Haze, Cheaper Than Therapy,
and Sudden Debt!
Winged Express AA/FA
The very famous Winged Express Fuel Altered piloted by Mike Boyd. Footage
from many years, Includes that heart wrenching moment in 2005 when we
watched the front wheel come off and the Wing hit the wall. Mike was okay,
it was sad to see the Wing so badly damaged. One of the most iconic cars
in drag racing history. The Wing was restored and is again doing what it
Alaskan AA Fuel Altered crash
The Alaskan Grizzly Racing Team from Fairbanks run the Alaskan Grizzly
AA/FA against their second AA/FA car named "Spare Parts" with Jamie &
Marty Bodenstadt driving against each other at Alaska Raceway Park on July
1, 2012. Spare Parts car breaks loose hitting the wall and takes Marty on a
wild ride. Go Pros were mounted on both cars for different views. This vid
will show why you need safety gear and chassis to specs to protect the
drivers. Marty came out of this unscathed.

Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits.
While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16
cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty
awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two
V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers
nervous when running for Top Eliminator.

A Video For Wild Willie Borsch Number 34 on NHRA Greatest Drivers
Gassers At 131 Dragway In The '60s
This is an updated version of my video "Drag Racing In The '60s part 3". I
made that video about three years ago and since then I have upgraded my
photo and video editing software. I have been able to clean up the photos
and video a bit and I added sound to the movies that I extracted from some
recent video I took at the drags. I thought it would be fun to add some
sound to the old 8mm movies. I also made it widescreen. The soundtrack is
me jammin' on some Booker T and the MGs and CCR.
World Fuel Altered Nationals 2009
The fuel altered nationals at Eddyville Raceway was another badass race
with some killer short wheel base fuel altereds tearing up the 1/8 mile. A
few 90+ % nitro running race cars shootin' flames like crazy!
