  1. This looks like Ken Murray out of Winnipeg Manitoba at Keystone Dragway circa 1968-70 running an injected Chrysler on fuel. Won the 1968 Canadian Nat's. If this is the same car it still survives hiding somewhere in Swift Current Saskatchewan.

    Just received some information about this picture. This was at the 1964 British Drag Racing Festival. If you look close you can see a gentleman in a white jumpsuit this is K.S. Pittman. Also there is a gentleman with a black jacket on and black rimmed glasses looking at the Ohio George's 33 Willys that is Chuck Stolzie owner of the S&S Team.

    The Garlits vs. Vodnik shot is from the 1963 NHRA Nationals. Garlits has won the class (driving Biddie Winward's car) on Sunday, then had to run Monday's winner of the remaining eight quickest on Monday for Top Eliminator (this was gas, as the NHRA fuel ban was still in effect). Garlits red-lit in the pictured final round, and this was the first NHRA national event to use the Xmas tree. Regards, Chase

  14. I ran all the Michigan strips from 61 on and don't remember EJ ever running a dragster, I remember the two full bodied cars and Bloody Mary along with the pulling tractors but no dragster.

    Anyone know if Kopper Shell Service is Ed Kopper, the crew chief for Bob Newberry? I've seen the Bowen and Kopper funny car, but not a Henry J.

    Warren Goodall, Sydney, Australia. Initially the truck had an injected 440 wedge Mopar but here it has a blown 392.
