    After your comment and that from Black Stude, I went back searching for an answer on the blimp picture, and you both may well be right...as it appears that Houston Freeway Drag Strip was the site of the former Hitchcock Naval Air Station that had a huge blimp hanger...I posted the history of Houston on my earlier post (I went through about 10 sites on Hitchcock Naval Air Station with nothing about drag racing, but then found the Houston history, it might be the answer (and why do we chase these obscure facts? Because it is our shared history, and we try to get it right, so thanks to all who have added information to my posts, or corrected my information!)

    Thehazcuy, thanks for posting the drag classes. It's hard to find a list of what was run, back in the day.

    I used to purchase the old Eastern Drag News at the drag strips when they cost .25 cents and then they raised the price to .35 cents back in the early 60's

    I still have all of them and I look through them all the time.

    Always had great coverage from all the big east coast drag strips back in the those day's along with a list of National Record holders.

    Interesting to note Bud Faubel had the S/SA record faster then he had the A/FX record.
    Some Div I names I have not heard in decades.

    The late "Coney Island Ralph" car after selling it. Pictures of car as Ralph owned it. Ralph built Anglia after this car.

    The old timers told a lot of stories about this car. Must have been unreal to see.
