Lions Drag Strip
A short Video For the greatest dragstrip ever Lions Drag Strip





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, especially when it is running.... 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.

Lions Drag Strip incredible Grand Premier accidents 1972
Season opening Grand Premier at Lions Drag Strip in Janaury 1972 marked the return of NHRA sanction to the world famous Wilmington/Long Beach, CA racetrack. Incredible clip is from Part 1 (of 3 part) video documentary "Lions - The Greatest Drag Strip", and shows the unusual amount of accidents that took place, thanks to veteran lensman Paul Sadler and Dave Kerr. Lions would close after its 17-year run just eleven months later.

AHRA Phoenix 1971 - Bee Line
Footage from the AHRA race at Bee Line (Phoenix) in 1971 Below commentary copied from Dragzine.com Slingshot Top Fuel dragsters, Funny Cars, Pro Stockers, Modified Production, Super Stockers, a young and curvy Linda Vaughn; it's all there. But perhaps the most interesting element captured and one that drag racing historians will pick up on right away is the presence of "Big Daddy" Don Garlits' Swamp Rat XIV. Although not the first rear engine dragster by any means, it undoubtedly ushered in the rear engine movement that led to the Top Fuel cars of today, and it's the footage of Garlits debuting and winning in the car at Pomona in 1971 that will forever live in infamy. But, as the AHRA Winternationals at Beeline took place in late January -- prior to the NHRA Winternationals -- what you're witnessing is the actual debut of the Swamp Rat XIV at Beeline.
