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'!!

Sportsman Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
The grass roots of Drag Racing, the weekend warriors, my old racin' buddies, as we were 25 or 30 years ago. Includes some exhibition cars too. These are pictures and video that I took at US 131 Dragway in Martin, MI, Central Michigan Dragway in Stanton MI, Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd Minnesota, and Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indianapolis IN. The soundtrack is just me jammin' on some Foreigner and Police.
