I got to thinking about early drag racing days. Each state progressed at different rates on organizing legal drag races. A good friend of mine that lived in the Atlanta area attended Georgia's earliest legal drag races in the summer of 1954. He had a 1932 Ford 3 window powered by an Oldsmobile engine. He was paired against Buckshot Morris who had a 1932 Ford roadster also equipped with an Oldsmobile engine. Buckshot was an expert mechanic that was involved in the early days of Nascar. My friend didn't win the race but I think he won in the long run. A couple of weeks after the race a teenage kid came up and said he took a snapshot of my friend Frank racing Buckshot, and would he like to have it? Frank thanked the kid and kept the photo. He never developed the photo until 2016. He presented it to me as a gift for taking such good care of his old 32 hot rod. I think it's amazing. It's summer of 1954 at Ted Edwards' Fairburn dragway. It's the first legal drag races on dirt for the state of Georgia. I hope you enjoy the picture like I do. If you have early drag racing photos let's see them.
