I'm not sure Dale footage could be considered nostalgic,......kinda,.....sorta,.......not exactly pre 1972 but,.......that's more like mid to late 90s.
I wish I had info about this one!!!
I saw that you had posted it on that Facebook page, asking for info about it....Not a s impressive as I remembered it. But not the original answer I read before. If it surfaces I will update it.
Bernier Bacon & Hoyt BB/GD dragster, @ New England Raceway, Roger Bacon driver, out of Mass. Late 60's, Chizler engine, Chute failed and had subpar brakes putting him well into the dirt. Luckily they were clearing the trees for a sand trap prior to this explaining the pile of tree brush.
