Default Stock / Super Stock, Pro Stock pics from the 80s

So I was going over literally a couple thousand old photographs that I still need to convert to digital and ran across hundreds of photos I took when I was 19-23. I believe most of these pictures were taken from 1984-85 to 1988 or 1989. I lived in La Verne, only about 10 minute drive from Pomona Raceway and went to the Winter Nationals every year.

My heros were the Stock / SuperStock racers like Calvert, Moreno, Waldo, Little, DeFrank & Cohen, etc. My favorite cars to watch were the Hemi Cudas and CJ Mustangs, and I also liked the Max Wedge mopars, Fairlanes, and anything else that would yank the wheels off the line. I just thought it was great to watch these guys, while most only showed interest in the Pro Classes.

Anyway here are a few:

I also found some Pro Stock pictures from the 80s, and one of Sherm Gunn when he won that year (I think it was 1984)

I literally have hundreds more. That Jenkins Hemi Dart I remember would pull the wheels in first, then pull them again when he shifted into second. That thing was awesome to watch.

AWESOME!! This is about the time I really got into drag racing, I was 12 in 1983. Dad worked at the local track (75-80) and we would go to the Keystone Nats in Maple Grove. The Stockers were fun to watch with the big wheelstands.
