Drag Racing the C6 Corvette

My first 1/4 mile Drag Race at Union Grove WI with the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour. My buddy Dan was my co pilot. The Big Block Camaro red lighted so I won the race. The car was running on 87 octane because that's all that was available because the Hot Rod Power Tour ran the gas station out of premium. Enjoy the video!

Hot rods drag racing. Exhibition Hot Rod Round 1 Eliminations: Gassers are based on closed body production models from the 1930s to mid-1960s, which have been stripped of extraneous weight and jacked up using a beam axle or tubular axle to provide better weight distribution on acceleration (beam axles are also lighter than an independent front suspension), though a raised stock front suspension is common as well. Common weight reduction techniques include fiberglass body panels, stripped interiors, and plexiglass windows (sometimes color tinted). The 1933-36 Willys coupés and pickups were very popular gassers.[4] The best-known would be the 1933 Willys 77.[5] It was never built in large numbers, making it a puzzle why it became popular: it was neither cheap nor plentiful.[6] Keith Ferrell's Dogcatcher, for instance, was a 1936 delivery with a fuel injected small-block Chevrolet, built for the class; in 1967, Ferrell deliberately left something off to run it in B/Altered (later, with a Supercharger, in BB/A).[7] After the company revived, the 1937-42 coupés, sedans, and pickups were again popular with hot rodders and gasser teams, and again, comparatively low production leaves unexplained why they gained so much attention.[8] Ollie Olsen's 1940 coupé Wil-A-Meaner (driven by Bob "Rapid" Dwyer[citation needed]) won the 1961 Nationals' A/G title.[9] Between 1962 and 1964, the Hassel & Vogelsong 1940 coupé "was the scourge of B/Gas", winning the 1963 and 1964 Nationals and setting a 1964 national record at 11.34.[10] In 1967, the Hrudka Brothers' 1933 panel delivery was a popular wheelstander.[11] Postwar Willyses were also used (such as the Bremerton, Washington-based Speed Sport Specialties 1954 Willys in B/Gas), but, despite being a better chassis than the 1955-7 Chevrolet, were never as popular as the prewar cars.[12] Combinations could be unusual. Fujimo,Too! was a B/G 1950 Plymouth business coupé (run by Adler and Trout) with an injected Oldsmobile and Hydro-Motive transmission.[13] Throughout the 1960s, the Stickle and Riffle Anglia, based out of the Rod Shop and driven by Bob Riffle, were frequent winners. Their only national title, however, was the B/G title at the 1967 Nationals and C/G at the 1968 Nationals.[14] Riffle's best pass in B/Gas was 10.54 seconds at 128.20 mph (206.32 km/h).[15] At the 1965 NHRA Nationals, held at Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indianapolis, Indiana, 1941 Willyses driven by Dick Bourgeous (owned by "Big John" Mamazian, sponsored by Engle Cams) and Doug "Cookie" Cook (the Stone-Woods-Cook gasser, sponsored by Isky Cams) faced off in A/GS.[16] (Cook took the win with a pass of 14.20 seconds at 116.53 mph (187.54 km/h).[17]) Stone-Woods-Cook abandoned A/GS for Top Fuel Funny Car by the start of the 1967 season.[18] Late model cars were first allowed in the Gas classes in 1967.[19] Mamazian would quit the gas classes for fuel funny car in 1968.[20] Gas classes were eliminated by NHRA in 1972.[21]
