Travel back in time during the early years of drag racing broadcasts. This 1975 U.S. Nationals appeared as a part of ABC's Wide World of Sports. Much of the show is spent speaking of safety and technical aspects of championship drag racing. You'll see the legends such as Don "Big Daddy" Garlits, Shirley "Cha Cha" Muldowney, Raymond Beadle, Don Prudhomme, Don Carlton, Dale Armstrong, and Jeg Coughlin. There's also a cameo appearance by the Tijuana Taxi. Also featured is the horrendous Top Fuel crash of Dick LaHaie and a three-wheel Funny Car, not on purpose. Chris Economacki is your host.
