Nostalgia NHRA Drag Racing 1966 World Finals in Tulsa Oklahoma. The final round in Super Eliminator matching me against Al Berglar at 5:50 minutes into this video. Keith Jackson is the narrator. Hard to believe that this was 46 years ago!
Vintage Drag Racing part 10, 1981 AHRA World FInals Spokane
Vintage Drag Racing early 1970s Part 10. Here's a wonderful piece of
history... the AHRA World Finals 1981, Spokane Raceway, Spokane, WA. From
Vern Scholz's collection of Super8 film with sound. Can we identify some
of these cars?
here's a few:

AHRA Phoenix 1971 - Bee Line
Footage from the AHRA race at Bee Line (Phoenix) in 1971
Below commentary copied from Dragzine.com
Slingshot Top Fuel dragsters, Funny Cars, Pro Stockers, Modified
Production, Super Stockers, a young and curvy Linda Vaughn; it's all there.
But perhaps the most interesting element captured and one that drag racing
historians will pick up on right away is the presence of "Big Daddy" Don
Garlits' Swamp Rat XIV. Although not the first rear engine dragster by any
means, it undoubtedly ushered in the rear engine movement that led to the
Top Fuel cars of today, and it's the footage of Garlits debuting and
winning in the car at Pomona in 1971 that will forever live in infamy. But,
as the AHRA Winternationals at Beeline took place in late January -- prior
to the NHRA Winternationals -- what you're witnessing is the actual debut
of the Swamp Rat XIV at Beeline.

1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than
ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these
high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no
longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.
