Drag Race Fever

The story involves a young man getting started in drag racing in the early 1960’s when the factory experimental race cars were the top calling cards of all drag race promoters. These cars were the first Funny Cars of today. Read how these racers evolved into the cars we see today and learn how driver Johnny Rock and his mechanic Clutch Roberts toured the states pulling their race car to the next match race, continuously sacrificing so their car would have the parts to race again. Although the story is fiction any drag race fan can fit different names to the drivers and relate to all the accounts of living on the road and racing every Saturday and Sunday at different tracks across the nation.

JeffI believe that era of drag racing will never die. I'm glad I can still remember some of the good old times and try to pass it on to the younger.
