Martin US131 Dragway, From The Beginning
The first 8 minutes of this video are from an 8MM movie that was given to me by my old racin' buddy Dennis White. He was given the film by his friend, Joe McNett, who's late father, Marv, took the movies in 1962-'63. Marv's 'dark blue '56 Ford can be seen at 1;42. Although the film was in very poor condition, I felt that, for historical purposes, it should be shared. I have never seen any film from the track from the first years that it was in operation, although some may exist. From the 8 minute mark until the finish are photos and movies that I took myself over the years 1966 to the present. A special thanks to Jim Luikens for providing the rare photo of Arnie Beswicks '63 Pontiac Tempest Wagon, "The Grocery Getter", when it was sponsored by Seltzer Pontiac.
