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. Bill Pitts,

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.





SEMA Drag Race: Hellcat vs Blasphemi vs Jeep FC vs Sonic! - 2014 SEMA Week Ep. 5
We've reached the final day of 2014 SEMA Week brought to you by 76, and only we would dare to bring this ridiculous mix of vehicles together for a grudge race on an unprepped airport runway. Fred Williams, Jessi Lang, Mike Sabounchi and Mike Finnegan begged and bribed SEMA Show exhibitors to loan them vehicles for a ¼ mile drag race and, though Finnegan and Sabounchi failed, the group still managed to acquire a Jeep riding on tank treads, a fresh-off-the-floor 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the infamous Hemi-powered ’55 Chevy Bel Air from Roadkill, and a turbocharged 2013 Chevy Sonic to do battle. The racers are as different as the cars. Finnegan lives in the world of hot rods, Lang regularly pilots the best the OEM carmakers have to offer, Williams spends all of his time in the dirt, and Sabounchi hops up every compact car on the planet. Who will come out on top? Watch and find out! Catch the full week of 2014 SEMA programming December 1st through December 5th with a new video premiering each day!
