Drag Racing 1964

Travel back to one of the more famous NHRA U.S. Nationals. Watch the ABC Wide World Sports Coverage of the most famous crash of Jim Nicoll and Don Prudhomme's impulse-driven retirement. If you can get past the incorrect car sounds and the constant referrals of Don Schumacher as Shoe-maker, it's a neat video. You'll even get to see Pro Stock and Top Gas, as well as bikes.

NEW! NHRA 1970 Nationals.wmv
This is a NEW 1970 NHRA Nationals video. This was the only national event I have ever participated in primarily because after this engine went south there was no more money to continue. My friend Stu took this video while I was in the staging area waiting for another run. The engine was a 4.5" Bore big block which was attained by boring into the water jackets and sleeving each cylinder. Now! you can buy a 572 cid direct from GM without all the problems. By the way, I made it to the second round of eliminations.
