In the mid to late '50s Chester Drag Strip in Chester, South Carolina was one of the East Coast's premier drag strips. It was managed by Bob Osiecki who had his hands in just about everything hot rodding and racing. It was there that Don Garlits had his legendary fire. Chester closed in 1960 but is a drag strip still fondly spoken of here in the Carolinas. This Chrysler powered A/G '34 Ford Coupe raced there in 1958 and was driven by 15 year old Burwell Kendrick, who is still drag racing 55 years later. I have enclosed a time card he saved from the money run against George Montgomery. The '34 was owned by Burwell's older brother. I bought the car from him in 1962 shortly after graduating from high school but found out quickly it was not something I could drive on the street. I paid about $500.00 for it but sold it and purchased a '53 Studebaker coupe with a 270 horse Corvette engine that I could drive on the street. Chester closed when I was 16 so I didn't get to see any racing there and it is just a legend to me. I hope some of you were there and can post your memories of and hopefully pictures of the track.
