THE NEW WEBSITE IS LIVE!
I want to thank the over 100 drivers that have sent in their profiles. You have been keeping us busy but I think they are all posted.
I received a box in the mail yesterday full of old Numidia Dragway pictures, newspaper stories and best of all a video!
Dale Vanderpool sent all of this to us and I took some time and put the video online. This is 8mm movie film shot by Dale in the early to mid 70's. This was when the track was called Dragways, Inc. and the staging lanes were on the far side of the track. Notice the airplane...pouring water from a jug in the burnout box. It shows regulars like Carl Brucher, Ray Thurston and Mooney & Weed as well as "T.V.Tommy" Ivo, "Cha Cha" Shirley Muldowney, Don Shumacher and "Jungle Jim" Liberman and even Jungle Pam! We cannot thank Dale enough for sharing this with us. They were special times. It's over 17 min. of starting line action and shots from the pits.
