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.

Jay's Car 1
We're now going to look at yet another cackle car in the making. This one
is being created for Mr. Jay Carpenter. Jay was very much involved in the
junior fuel class from 1968 through 1973. Jay and his partner Mike Clancy
were very competitive in the junior fuel class and raced at Lion's Drag
Strip, Irwindale Raceway, Orange County, The Pond, and Carlsbad Raceway.
But Jay always admired the Woody Gilmore Chassis in top fuel. And so--some
40 years later, he has decided to create, with the help of Freddie
Hayhurst, a Woody Gilmore car that incorporates most of the best aspects of
the '67,'68, and '69 Woody cars. And some other aspects that will help
make this a very fine cacklefest car.
So join us as Jay "takes delivery" of the chassis.
Thanks for watching.
