    In 1959 at 15 years old I was the flagman for DAHIO drag strip just west of Dayton, Ohio. I was wondering if anyone would happen to have any pictures from that season.
    At that time NHRA member clubs helped at the drag strip and our club, VIKING CUSTOMS, was assigned to the starting line. We ran on Sundays and the third week the flagman didn't show so the strip manager asked for a volunteer. Nobody wanted the job so I said why not and flagged for the rest of the season.
    I'd sure appreciate a picture if anyone has one.

    Here's a start, click on this link below...it's a Thread by one of The Hambs Veteran Hotrod Artists, @Jeff Norwell on Flagmen...;)

    https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/help-i-need-pics-of-flagmen.164524/

    I suspect since you've been here so many years on the Hamb you have searched the numerous drag related Threads and if not I feel you stand a better chance to find an image with yourself flagging as flagman are actually part of but not the main focus here...

    Heres a few I found...
