VIDEO FLASHBACK - 1980 NHRA WORLD FINALS
The fact it isn't considered one of the NHRA's top races ever is a head-scratcher.
The 1980 NHRA World Finals was one of epic proportions in that two of the three professional divisions had their championships decided on the final run of the season, somewhat of a rarity in those days even though the season only had eight races.
To our knowledge is was the first-ever NHRA event broadcast on the new NBC Sports variety show Sportsworld and featured the legendary Paul Page.
Watch a Top Fuel championship come down to multiple Top Fuel drivers. You will also see quite possibly the greatest Pro Stock championship battle between Bob Glidden and Lee Shepherd.
