The Legend Bob Glidden
My tribute to my all time favorite Pro Stock racer Bob Glidden. All photos
are from my collection of pictures that I took of some of Bob's cars over
the years. Also included is the Diamond P coverage of Bobs horrifying crash
at the 1986 race in Atlanta.
In the '90s Bobs sons Billy and Rusty told thier Dad that they knew of some
Pro Stock racers who were running Nitrous Oxide and that was the reason they were
getting outrun. Bob didn't believe them so they built a second car to prove
that it could be done without being detected. .From the Feb 1996 issue of
Super Stock & Drag Illustrated. Page 24
"They will tell you it's totally impossible to run Nitrous & not get caught'' Glidden said " but
thats wrong,Thats flat wrong. A Ford with Nitrous bumped me outta the field at Topeka last
year. A Ford out of my own trailer. So nobody can tell me it can't be done.
I know it can be done."
The the father told a incredible story of how his kids had bugged him for
18 months , convinced that some Pro cars were running Nitrous & that he was missing the boat by not
running it too. "I told them if i had to cheat to race i'd quit" he said
"My kids know that: " if you think other people are doing it then go ahead,
prove to me you can do it.But keep in mind that if you get caught you're
going have to deal with the consequences; So they did & never got caught"
Later in the story
Then came the bombshell--- an admission at Indy by a Pro Stock racer with
firsthand knowledge of Nitrous oxide use
: Rusty Glidden. With his confession came a detailed description of how the
Nitrous system was secreted in his car.
"The holding tank was the big weight bar in the back. The Nitrous line started there,went over the axle
housing right up to the front of the car & stopped at the motor plate,
which was rifle-drilled. One of the supports holding the hood scoop on was
rifle-drilled & went up thru the top of the hood scoop to a small stainless
steel line that had 2 jets centered over the carbs. With .029 jets we made
120 ftlbs more torque at 7000 rpm & averaged 90 more horsepower. According to Bob
Glidden , the Nitrous system was
detection proof. "you had to have a combination of things to activate it so
a tech guy couldn't walk up , turn on the ignition & open the throttle. The
shock switch had to be on, the computer switch on, the engine running & the
throttle wide open. Trust me" Glidden concluded " Thats not fiction"
Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

Arnie Beswick's 1969 D/Stock Pontiac GTO Judge V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We recently came across legendary drag racer
Arnie The Farmer Beswicks 1969 D/Stock Pontiac GTO Judge. Back in 1969,
Pontiac let out a few hand-tweaked Ram Air IV 400 cubic inch GTOs to a few
lucky drag racers. These engines were rumored to far surpass the stock 370
and the story has it that Pontiac wanted these Ram Air IV Judges to be
raced in stock-class races across the country. Beswicks car is truly a
stripper model, with no options or sound deadener to keep it light. Even
the seam sealer was left off this car to keep the weight to a minimum.
Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge
Everything changes; that includes the '60's and very early 70's muscle-car
era during which Norman Kraus, aka "Mr. Norm", rocketed to fame on the
basis of his car dealer, Grand Spaulding Dodge, which was the first to put
a 383, 440 and 426 Hemi V-8's into the boxy Dodge Dart and created a
performance legend in the process.
Yes, he's still alive; yes, he's still designing cars. If you saw his 600
hp Super Challenger at the L.A. or Chicago Auto Shows or at this year's
SEMA show, you know he's still got the touch.
