CLASSIC VIDEO REWIND - '77 GATORS

Back in the day, the NHRA presented its drag racing through syndicated
Diamond P broadcasts. This video features the first round of
eliminations in Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Stock. As you can see, drag
racing is vastly different than what we enjoy today. You'll see the
legends like Big Daddy Don Garlits, Shirley Muldowney, Raymond Beadle,
Roger Lindamood, Bob Glidden and Larry Lombardo.

CLASSIC VIDEO - ALLEN-WIEBE

This classic video footage comes from the 1973 P.R.O. event in Tulsa
when John Wiebe and Jeb Allen became entangled in a nasty crash during
eliminations. Allen suffered substantial burns on both hands and Wiebe
suffered a broken leg and ankle. A tire issue apparently led to Wiebe's
car darting into Allen's lane where they made the initial contact.

VIDEO TIME MACHINE - CMS PIT ROAD 1974

This weekend's NHRA Carolina's Nationals in Concord, N.C., may be the
first time an NHRA national event has been contested on Lowe's Motor
Speedway grounds, but it is not the first national event. In 1974, the
IHRA staged their Southern Nationals during the last weekend of March.
This event was a one-off largely due to the unfortunate death of jet
car driver Dave Anderson and two crewmembers of a different team.

On
more than one occaison, noted Carolina promoter Tom Ferrell held events
at the storied facility. CompetitionPlus.com has obtained rare footage
from one of those events. Included, you will see notably Roy Hill's
Plymouth Duster and motorcycle icon E.J. Potter. You might even get a
glimpse of Gene Fulton's White Wagon, a three-time championship car
destroyed in a two-car crash in Bristol four years later.
