Yes, that is the Raven Rock I was talking about. I'm sorry to say I never took any pictures either. Riverside Dragstrip was in Proctorville, Ohio. Maybe 15 miles up from Ironton, it was right on the river. We went down to the Don Garlits Hall of Fame in 2005 to see Gordon get inducted into the Hall of Fame. We got to sit at his table with him and his wife for the entire evening. He said he didn't save anything from back in those days. I took a magazine to him that had his car on the cover. At the NHRA Museum in California they have a big display on Collett. A guy in West Porstmouth had his old 57 dragster hanging in a barn and sold it to Gordon. He is slowly restoring it. If you go to utube and punch in Gordon Collett, another guy fron West Portsmouth has posted a short movie of Gordon Making a pass at Raven Rock in that dragster. Do you remember Bob Porter(Porters Pride). Darrell Lewis, or Bob Delabar? I remember the Cook Brothers dragster, and the Fisher Brothers dragster also. Send me an email at LVNHRA@msn.com and I will send you a few photos. Thanks for replying. Patrick Fogel said:
Are you talking about Raven Rock Dragstrip in Portsmouth, OH? I went there a lot when I was a kid! Sorry I don't have any pictures. The first time I saw Gordon Collett he ran there and the Cook Bros. with their hemi rail. Where was Riverside except in California? There is Edgewater in Cinti.
