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 does best!
R.I.P. Bill "Maverick" Golden
Bill "Maverick" Golden passed away this week. One of the pioneers of exhibition drag racing, his "Little Red Wagon", wheelstander, thrilled drag fans all across the country for many years, beginning in the 60s. Here he is at Martin US 131 Dragway in 1987 when he brought the "Little Red Wagon" out retirement.
There are many types and classes of cars and bikes racing at the drag strip. One of my favourites are the Fuel Altereds, the combination of obscene engine power and short wheelbase gives them the tendency to prefer to go in any direction except straight forward. I love them and their ability to bark at you!
