Remembering racing in the early 60's this morning. I was happily racing a Chassis Research dragster with a SBC in those days before being called for the Vietnam fun. One night, at Green Valley Raceway (between Dallas and Ft. Worth) I was paired up in the push start lane with another dragster campaigned by a local racer Paul Davis. We were ready to go when Paul noticed my fuel shut off valve leaking and dripping. Paul, without speaking, quickly tied a pink shop rag around the valve to absorb and mask the leak, knowing that the line crew would have backed me off and not allowed me to run with that leak! I don't remember who won that race but probably Paul's car. I was just a 22 year old kid with a cobbled together(but fast!) dragster.
