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.
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!
Drag Racing Nostalgia from American Nitro
Jungle Jim Liberman and an intense blend of flesh, fire, and burning
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.
Buy the DVD at http://americannitro.com and follow a ground pounding
spectacle that builds to a climactic showdown between drag racing legends
Don "The Snake" Prudhomme and Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen.
Don Kitch Explains the Pacific Raceways Track
Don Kitch of ProFormance Racing School is guiding me around the Pacific
Raceways track near Kent, WA. It was my first track day as part of the
"Intro to Sport Driving" Class. I was driving my Porsche Boxster S (981) in
convoy with an almost brand new Porsche 911 Carrera 4S (991). This video
shows me driving in the lead driving twice around, with Don explaining the
best line and providing some feedback on my driving.
