CP SPORTSMAN VIDEO - 1978 NHRA SPORTSNATIONALS

8-12-11cptv_modified
Travel back in time to an era when sportsman racing meant all-out competition from start to finish. There were no electronics, no cat and mouse battles down the track, and you had to win class.

Thanks to YouTube.com, we are proud to bring you the Diamond P video production of the 1978 NHRA Sportsnationals from Beech bend International Raceway in Bowling Green, Ky.

This video feature Pro Comp eliminations when the AA/DA dragsters and BB/FCs battled it out under the same umbrella.  You’ll also see Comp eliminator and one Pro Stock legend racing his Mopar. The high-winding and gear-jamming Modified cars do battle as well.

You’ll also see more than a fair share of Stock and Super Stockers.

The video is a little rough in the first part but the sound is incredible. If you’re an old school sportsman drag racing fan, you’ll be in Heaven for at least an hour.

NMCA CAPS SUCCESS BLUEGRASS NATIONALS

​Mother Nature tried her best to disrupt the race with several rain delays, but the NMCA staff was patient and eventually the storms passed and cars were able to get down the track at the 16th Annual Quick Fuel Technology NMCA Bluegrass Nationals Presented by Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Featuring the Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. A monumental effort was made by all to get the race in before the weather turned once again, and, incredibly, all was said and done just before 4:00pm on Sunday as winners headed to the Aerospace Components Winners’ Circle.

The three power adders of the VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod category were all well represented, but it was Steve Summers whose twin-turbocharged ’16 Camaro took top honors after qualifying on a 3.810 at 214.45 mph hit. Daniel Pharris of Sikeston, Missouri, had a few minor issues with his gorgeous new Mustang during the weekend, but it wasn’t enough to keep him from squaring off against Billy Harper in the finals. There, Harper fouled at the start and opened the door for Pharris to take the win; Pharris had problems getting down the track, but got it done and made the victory official.
