Thanks for sharing! That place will always be the 'big' track in my mind. I grew up going there to watch the big guys run.

This is the "Fourth Horseman" 'Vette owned by Clark Rader Jr, the man whose family built National Trail Raceway. Clark was the 'face" of the track for years, a great guy and really colorful.
And yes, that is Linda Vaughn.

Experimentation was the rule not the exception.
Todays drag cars are faster and safer but they all look the same in many ways.
Those cars were built not unlike our hotrods...inspiration and perspiration
not 1-800 send me the part.

I'll post some more tomorrow during the day. Some will be slightly "o/t" but nothing newer than '73 or there abouts.

OK, back for Day 2.
The Motown Missle may be a bit o/t, but I figured it was such an influential car that I'd post it.

More you say?
The Funnies are a little "O/T", but I think it is a great shot. I'm pretty sure that is Jeg Coughlin Sr in the Camaro
