Pro Stock Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
Some pictures that I took of Pro Stockers back in the '70s and '80s along
with a clip from the Diamond P video "Decade Of Thrills" Note... the last
photo, at 6:43, before the video clip is one that I took from the
grandstands at the '83 US Nationals showing Lee Shepherd in the lead at
that point. But as the video shows, Bob Glidden drove around him to take
the title. Great Racin'!!

RIDE IN AN 8 SECOND VOLKSWAGEN PROSTOCK PART 2 WITH CRASH
RIDE IN AN 8 SECOND VOLKSWAGEN PROSTOCK PART 2. Very heavily edited for
obvious reasons, Tay felt sick about wrecking his car and I respect him and
everyone else enough to only post the parts every one wants to see. Tay was
OK and I have not heard if Jim Unger Race Cars got him back on the track or
not. Thanks for watching. I pray to never see another racer go through
this, but it is a part of racing.

Mean Gene Cook turbo street VW wheelie and outta the groove! Farmington NC, OCT.19, 2008
First pass is qualifying against Troy Sellars, and I get a nasty wheelie
goin. Second pass is the Unlimited Street East final with me against
"Jersey Joe" Koenig. My car pulled hard right, got outta the groove and it
was hang-on time after that! Allan Fore went head on into the wall right in
front of me, so I was a little worried about the cold track. Luckily I was
able to stay outta the wall! I ended the day as runner up, but we were
number 1 qualifier et and mph! Cooker's V-Dubs, Clear Spring, Maryland
