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'!!

Pro Stock VW drag racing: PRA '94
This is racing action from the PRA '94 videotape; the Pro Stock class. The
drag racing action starts off with passes from the 1993 season, when Ron
Lummus Racing and the Mike Stewin/JayCee crew were slugging it out in the
points title chase. The rivalry continued into 1994, but with Jack
Sacchette doing the driving against RLR. Most of the Pro Stock participants
were experienced drivers; Super Street was the place where you cut your
teeth on heads-up VW drag racing.
One of the most experienced drivers on the circuit was Larry Kelley. He had
been racing Volkswagens back in the '60's, and when the import drag racing
scene blew up in the mid '90's, both he and his son Scott Kelley hit it big
time. They are still doing it in 2015, this time with the NHRA:
Ray Medrano ran his car in this all-motor PRA Pro Stock class, and shortly
thereafter put Nitrous to it. He would
drive up from L.A. to the Sacramento Bugorama, with a small dog for a crew
chief. He would run big numbers, then pack the dog and the car up, and
drive home. These days you'll probably find him racing Super Comp at
The PRA Pro Stock VW drag racing class was a pounds-per-cubic-inch, tube
chassis class. Perhaps it could be said that the halcyon days of the class
were in the early '90's, but regardless of the turnout, some people
considered it to be the pinnacle of VW drag racing.
