The Original Jr Dragster (Racing on a public street)
Before the Junior Drag Racing League was formed in 1992, I had what equated
to a Jr Dragster.
The car started out as a large go cart (A Christmas present in 1985), which
was eventually converted into a smaller version of its original design
(1988), and finally converted into a small rear engine dragster during
January of 1990.
The following video shows the evolution of my go cart.
All changes were made in the shop behind the home in which I grew up. My
Dad and I did all of the work ourselves.
On a side note, later in the video you will hear sounds of the race track
being played. This came as a result of my carrying a tape recorder to the
races that I kept in my pocket. I literally recorded hours worth of racing
sounds to play back while I was racing at home. This made the time I spent
racing in the yard and on the street in front of my house more realistic. I
also had a friend and my cousin who worked with me as my pit crew.
I did not realize how realistic my backyard racing truly was until we began
racing for real in 1992.
Additionally, you will see that we eventually added a second go cart
dragster that is driven by my cousin.
To time my runs, I held a stopwatch in my hand and would start and stop the
stopwatch myself. Additionally, you will see a couple of interesting
features of the go cart dragster. These features include a quick disconnect
steering wheel and a hand brake.
I hope you enjoy the video!

On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to
veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent
track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no
injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes.
It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2
liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
