This video covers the initial passes and testing of our ProStock truck. The
engine was a 580cid Steve Schmidt Prostock motor and we ran a glide trans
to save on maintenance. This combination is capable of 6s @ 200+mph with a
5-speed manual trans.

2012 NHRA Pro-Stock - Huge Flip and Airborne Wreck
Thanks to darcyf1.com. No copyright infringement intended. Shane Gray comes
down the drag-strip, gets loose, flips and hits the wall hard and while
up-side down goes airborne and comes back on its wheels and smashes the
wall again. He was ok.

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'!!
