Salute to a Surfer
Tom Jobe just turned 70? I still can't believe it. For you see, Tom was/is one of the three original members of "The Surfer's" top fuel team of the mid-60's. A team that was really something to behold. Now, during that time, I shot home movies in the grandstands, and thought this might be a good time to put a couple of The Surfer's performance runs together and set them to music. And to my surprise, I found around 15 individual performance passes of this top fuel team. So I put them all together and looked at them and found that it was true. These guys really did win convincingly! As you watch these, you may see them "shutdown" after they start the pass. Well, if you'll look--more often than not it's 'cause the other guy "red lit". And you know what they said: L.L. You better know that means or you're not a true drag buff...;) But watch these and you'll see what I mean. You guys were really something, Tom. Happy Birthday.

Freight Train fires up at 2008 CHRR
Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.

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.
