Ok, I was going to do this project a few years ago, but things got in the way and it never got going. But I'm ready to start now. I'm going to do a documentary on the history of drag racing in Minnesota. There were a lot of great drivers from here and Minnesota Dragways drew a lot of big names through the years. The story will start in the 50's before organized tracks and talk about cruising and street racing, then work through roughly 1970 and the organized racing and the tracks here in Minnesota. I have a few friends who are friend's with many of the old drag racers of the day as well as many of the early GSTA guy's who were influential in getting Minnesota dragways going. I have a verbal commitment for a sitdown interview with Doc Halladay and hope to have Hoover and Bill Schifsky along with many, many other people who helped form the scene back then. John Foster Jr., who's dad was in the GSTA in the early days and ran Minnesota Dragways will be going through a bunch of old 8mm film and pictures from back in the day for this project. I also have 30 minutes of footage from Minnesota Dragways from 1959-61 that has early Garlits, Ivo and others on it. I also have 2 hrs of footage from Minnesota Dragways and Twin Cities from the 50's to about 1970 that I'm getting permission to use. Anyways, I was wondering if there were HAMBer's on here that might have stuff they would like to contribute to the project? What I'm still looking for are three things right now, one are pictures of Twin Cities Speedway and Minnesota Dragways. Not just drag racing pictures, but pictures of things like the tower and the main signage and people, drag racing photos are great too, but I'm really looking for some of the other types of photos. Second, I'd like photos of cars and people and places around the twin cities from back before the drag strips were open. Something that will help tell the story before the drag strips opened. Third, I'm looking for music that I can use royalty free. I'd prefer to have music without singing and music that might fit the era, but it doesn't have to, it's more important to have music without singing, so if there are any musicians out there that would like to contribute to the project let me know. I really think this will turn out to be a cool project and I hope others think so too. You can post here or PM me with info, but try to post your thoughts and info here to keep this active for a bit so I can get as many people to read as I can.
