Return to Lions Drag Strip Long Beach California 2008
This is the third year of featuring restored dragsters that have run the 1320' Lions Drag Strip in its hey day... This video, typical of going to a drag strip, despite John Ewald telling everyone to stand back, you never get to see much when they display cars this way. Typical of the drag strip, all the vehicles require too much support, they stand around the car and block the view.... At the CHRR in Bakersfield, the Cacklefest is blocked by a bunch of folks standing at the concrete wall on the track blocking the view to the grand stands as if the concrete barrier wasn't enough....I have been going to the drags since I was a youngster and it seems the problem is no one can stay seated for a run and your typical day at the drags to this day takes on a Jack in the Box atmosphere.... I guess that is the way it is.....Anyway, the City of Long Beach Chamber of Commerce puts on a nice event and I hope it continues into the future.

Irwindale Raceway, Irwindale Ca 1968 home movie.
This has several funny cars from the late 60s era. It was taken with an old 8mm home movie camera and the film did not hold up well over the years and it was a very crude transfer from home movie to digital. But car enthusiest might enjoy seeing the old funny cars.
