Re: Old racing pics

Some that I took at the 1974 NHRA World Finals at Ontario Motor Speedway in Los Angeles.

Shirl Greer had a serious fire in qualifying.
They patched the body up with sheets of aluminium and in severe pain he won the first round which was enough to win the world series.
This photo is before the fire.

Don Nicholson was defeated in the semis by eventual winner Bob Glidden.

OMS was a great facility, but it was bulldozed a few years later.
This is Gene Snow on the dragstrip, which was the pit straight of the oval and road track.

I loved these Opel GT gassers. Long time NHRA starter Buster Couch behind the car.
