    Thanks, I will take a look at that this afternoon when I have more time.
    I joined the NHRA in 1935 when I got my drivers license. That year a group of us formed the old Shreveport timing Association - STA and began hosting drag races at the old Mansfield airport. Those were some great years.

    I had not seen this before. If you like drag racing, you'll like seeing its history.

    I tried to warn you! ;)
    "and yes, there is some cheesy music and the production quality is mediocre, but it’s definitely worth a look."

    bought my first membership from Wally Parks at our Grand Island, Ne. drag strip when the NHRA Safari was there teaching us how to use the timing system. Yeppers, 50 cents for the membership, what great memories. This film is amazing, thanx bro
