The Last Drag Race

at Long Beach Lion's

Good story... I wasn't there for last one, but I was there for some of the first ones, starting in 1956. This was back in the day when amateurs ruled the sport and it didn't take a suitcase full of money to compete. You could tweak your car a little and go out on Saturday morning to race; and race all day!

  1. I never went to Lions but at San Gabriel I saw Tommy Ivo race the Green Monster jet engine dragster. I remember Don Garlits and Shirley Muldowney. The Winter Nationals at Pomona was always good to watch. Those were the days.
