Gassers At 131 Dragway In The '60s
This is an updated version of my video "Drag Racing In The '60s part 3". I
made that video about three years ago and since then I have upgraded my
photo and video editing software. I have been able to clean up the photos
and video a bit and I added sound to the movies that I extracted from some
recent video I took at the drags. I thought it would be fun to add some
sound to the old 8mm movies. I also made it widescreen. The soundtrack is
me jammin' on some Booker T and the MGs and CCR.
IRWINDALE RACEWAY 1971.wmv
Special thanks to Tom West & Steve Reyes, for shooting the Nanook stills,
at the same time my father shot this footage. Drag Racing So. California
style, racing action on the track, and take a walk through the pits along
with my family and I, in an era missed, but not forgotten.
60's Drag Racing
Gassers (I was really into the Willys coupes!), Early Funny Cars, some
Stockers, Rails, and more, taken when I was just a kid. Most are from the
NHRA Nationals in Indy, some from Great Lakes Dragway, and from US 131 in
Martin, Michigan. The Hemi Under Glass is a hand-out, not an original
Sportsman Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
The grass roots of Drag Racing, the weekend warriors, my old racin'
buddies, as we were 25 or 30 years ago. Includes some exhibition cars too.
These are pictures and video that I took at US 131 Dragway in Martin, MI,
Central Michigan Dragway in Stanton MI, Brainerd International Raceway in
Brainerd Minnesota, and Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indianapolis IN. The
soundtrack is just me jammin' on some Foreigner and Police.
Street Car Drag Racing Action- GM Nationals#1- St. Louis
Want to see more? Full length video "GM Nationals #1" available at
Gateway has played host to many wild events in the past, this is one of
them! Drag racing legends like California's Monte Bernie , Michigan's
Mike Moran, and Chicago's Mike Alberts ran here. Keith Potter's wild GTO
showed both sides of the car to the crowd before locking down a wild side
by side run!
Al Tucci, the unmistakable "Voice of Pro-Street" calls the race.
GASSERS OF THE '50's '60's '70's
Nine minute promo from the full length (105 min) video available through
Jim Amos' Bee On Video. You will find a mix of nationally famous cars as
well as regional and local cars from around the country. We have included
footage from thirty-eight different tracks in the USA and Canada. Real car
sounds fully narrated. The full length video is fully narrated unlike this
promo clip which only includes car sounds.
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'!!
