Anyone here present that summer night in 1971 at Wichita International Raceway? I was waiting to make my first trip down the drag strip in my new 66 Mustang. I had befriended a guy with a red 69 Boss 429. He was giving me the lowdown on staging and and the Christmas tree. I was 17 and ready to go drag racing. As I was waiting a really nice '57 Chevy named Poppycock was making a run. About 2/3's thru his run the car rolled. I was stunned. All the emergency vehicles got down there. The driver was able to walk to the ambulance. I had heard later he died on the way to the hospital. I've forgotten his name thru the years. Needless to say, I didn't race that night. Itwas a sobering introduction to drag racing. I raced plenty of times through the years. Met the guy with the 429 13 years later through a mutual friend. Even got to go for a ride in the Boss. That crap about them not being fast was just that, Crap. What a memory.
