    Enjoy drag racing more than any other motor racing.
    Love to see first timers jump when they see/hear their first top fuel goes hammer down.
    First time for me was 1962 at Detroit Dragway.

      Brother and me used to sneak out just about every night to go lay in the grass at the departure end of the runway to watch, listen, and feel the full burner take-offs of F-4 Phantoms. By the time we discovered dragstrips we were well prepared for the mayhem. My brother would buy a pit pass and help wrench.

      At Pomona airport, the dragstrip is right across the street from the runway. The normal 3* slope would put ya about 30-40 feet above the drags. I would try to time my approaches to be over the strip when the Christmas tree turned green.

      Nope, mix of kerosene and gas poured out in front of the tires, light the gas and then start the burnout. That’s a good one in the pic, most of the time they aren’t that big. As a driver the first one can be plenty scary to do.
