    Pretty strange place for an unsupported roll bar too...
    MAYBE...there's a hidden support in there at the cowl.!?

    Its good to see that they mounted the roll bar in a way that keeps that engine cover/air scoop thing from hitting the driver in the head when it lifts off once the car gets up to speed.

    This is a good shot....its nice too see a drag racer take time out for a photo shot...and apparently there's someone wanting a autograph or something and the driver is politely making a jester that he will be with them in "one moment"... very nice. 16043533995093048582676823852970.jpeg

    Some times a unexpected range of motion can be a bad thing. 16044900954088169546925168315382.jpeg 16044901163826243854262522404258.jpeg

    Hello,

    Here is a short action video provided by PNW Marty Strode’s collection of drag racing DVDs. We are looking at all of the footage and trying to get some digital film or photos for display. The collection is from the PNW in different years and dates.

    It was noted that this 2020 year may be the last participating year for Chris Karamesines, The Greek. So, a portion of the film collection was edited for this display. Thanks @MartyStrode … more to come… Thanks to The Greek for the years of excitement and professionalism.

    THE GREEK, Kent, WASHINGTON

    Chris Karamesines history in drag racing is one for the books. His early start and longevity is a wonder of the world. Our introduction to “The Greek” was reading all of his early drag racing career exploits in the Midwest from our weekly Drag News papers. Then of all things, in December of 1959, “The Greek” shows up at So Cal’s Riverside Raceway for an all-out assault against the top racers from the Westcoast. His so-called team consisted of Don Garlits, Bobby Langley, to mention a few. That in itself, is a powerful team.
    1959 Riverside Raceway So Cal

    So, our introduction was pretty exciting. His creation of those powerful, well designed swoopy headers were/are one of a kind. Everyone was impressed with the action. Then a few years rolls on and with a new chassis and motor, but with the same cool header design, he becomes a touring pro, like many others at the time.

    This is the portion from Marty Strode’s collection. It is now 1963 in Kent, Washington.

    The late great Paul Longenecker was one of my favorite low-buck fuel racers. Won Top Fuel titles in AHRA and IHRA. He raced about everything including Pro Stock.
