I was born and grew up in Long Beach during this same time, my Dad and uncles would take me there. I can still remember the smell of bleach, burning rubber, and nitro methane. I Miss You Dad.

Motes & Williams Twin Engine Dragster 3
The Motes and Williams car was `70 & `71 NHRA World Champion in Top Gas. In 1970 it won the Springnationals and World Finals. In 1971 it won the Springnationals and U.S. Nationals.I hope you enjoy my current Motes & Williams footage. This was taken Oct 2001, Mike Newkirk at the wheel. RC Williams and Greg Cook starting the car and me, I'm behind the camera. I don't remember, but this was one of the first times the car ran since we restored it. Wish I had my camera with me at John Laubhan's shop during the rebuilding.

SBC 305 Nitro Engine Blow Up Contest Blowing Motor
WFO Racing end of season Halloween Party at Finns place. 305 Chevy Small Block lasted 2:40 on full Nitro Methane.
I'm "Junk 305 Man". With the help of my trusty sidekick "Engine Stand Boy" we will do our best to rid the engine world of turds like the 305 Chevy.
Just doing our part to recycle while having fun.
Besides, what goes better with alcohol like blowing things up.
