This pic is not mine, I found it but did ask Jerry Clayton about the outcome of the sky high wheelie.

Put yourself in the drivers seat in the pic below. The car came down and did not hurt the front end. It did break the body mounts off the back of the car. They scurried to find a fix for the next round. The only thing they could think of was to wire it back together. Having no wire they cut a bunch of barb wire fencing from the tracks back perimeter to make thier repair. Then the car came back to runs its best pass of the day. Once again whatever it took to get it done.

Wow, a brush-hog, a backpack blower, and a couple gallons of Pimp Juice would have that place hopping overnight!

So. here we are, forty to fifty years later. We've got rules, technology, rules, hardware, rules, magnificent drag strips, rules, sfi requirements, rules, and everythings else, including rule upon rule for every aspect of racing that do very little except drive the costs thru the roof. How are we any better off?
Do you think, another fifty years down the road, that anyone will care to see pictures of what's going on today? I doubt it.

Probably not, they will be more readily available.

Thanks for taking the time to post these pics. I can remember alot of these in old Hotrod books I used to look at as a kid. My 1st trip to the dragstrip was with my uncle. We went to Thornhill in Ky where they had the old clocks instead of a xmas tree. I think it was Car Craft that done a article on Thornhill and the clocks they had then. There was a 56 chevy that ran hi 10's and man I thought he was flying. Brings back alot of good memories.
