My dad had me at Eatonton, Twiggs, Reynolds and ATL dragway when i was in diapers. Had me in the machine shop with a box of holley carburetors taking them apart in a corner when i was able to stand on my own. I never could figure out how to put them back together

The year was 1973. My dad took us boys to Courtland ,Alabama to the 1/4mi. dragstrip there. It was on an old wwll air base. I saw my hero Wayne Mahaffy in the Alabamian vega funny car match racing with another southern legend Billy Holt. It was the loudest thing I had ever heard at 13 years old. I was addicted and still am.

Richmond Dragway in 1968 or 70. My Brother took me when I was about 7 years old.
I seem to think we went to see the "Little Red Wagon". There was a blue Nova there that day that had blue headlights and a Plexiglas blue mail box hood scoop that I thought was the coolest thing I had ever seen. Also remember riding my bike one day when a local roundy rounder came by with a 55 chevy, I have had this addiction ever since.
