Video from the Mothers Day drag races, May 12th 1963 at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Washington. This was shot by a friend of my parents, Tex Steere, who asked me to help convert it for him and has graciously allowed me to post it on YouTube.
2014 Seattle SCCA Majors crash during qualifying.
Skip ahead to 3:50 to just view the crash - Jim.
5 cars down the hill into turn 3 at Seattle's Pacific Raceway during
Saturday Qualifying. First two tangle and I get caught in the mess. Biggest
crash of my life. The strength of the chassis after we converted it to tube
frame probably protected me from a major injury. Thanks to my mechanic Dan
Watt and Rod Nielsen of Hot Rod's Restos for building such a good car.

Vintage Drag Races - 1962
I found this gem in a box of 8mm films given to me for a transfer job to
DVD. It's a series of "run what ya brung" drag races at Island Dragway,
Great Meadows, NJ in 1962. The guy I'm doing the job for was driving the
blue '62 Impala SS 409. Enjoy!
Vintage Drag Racing, 1955 World Series of Drag Racing
Footage of the 1955 World Series of Drag Racing in Lawrenceville, IL.
Includes Art Arfons' Green Monster 2, a 20 foot long, six wheeled car
powered by a 2000 horsepower Allison aircraft
engine. It was hitting 100 miles per hour in the quarter mile at this
event. Green Monster Number 2 was painted by Arfons' mother to resemble the
World War II Curtiss P-40 Flying Tigers fighter airplane, with an open
mouth showing large teeth. The top speed of the car was estimated at 270
miles per hour, and it could reach 140 miles per hour in eight seconds from
a standing start. Running on passenger car tires, the car required four
wheels on the rear drive axle to withstand the power. At the World Series
of Drag Racing in Lawrenceville, Illinois, it clocked the highest top speed
at 132.35 mph, and eventually went on to a world record of 145.16 mph.

rubber. Filled with the hairiest crashes, flips, explosions, and fires
imaginable. It's a thrill a minute following the drivers, their gutsy sex
charged women and the awesome machines that attract them both.
