  2. You could do a frame by frame stop action of the red primered RP and use as a build sheet for something really cool!

    I don't think all of that is Detroit Dragway. Some looks like Milan to me. And the Freight Train sure looks like it was at IRP. That might make sense sense with the footage of the Indy 500. But all of it is cool!

    There's a promotional video from NHRA called Ingenuity in action which was professionally shot and I believe it is of the 1959 Detroit nationals.
