CLASSIC VIDEO REWIND - 1979 IHRA FUNNY CAR NATIONALS

Since the IHRA Funny Car division will be a thing of the past in 2009,
we felt it was pretty neat to find this video showing a day and time
when the floppers were a staple of the sanctioning body's program.

This classic video rewind comes from the 1979 IHRA Funny Car Nationals
hosted by Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Ga. On this clip you'll see such
notables as Dale Pulde, Raymond Beadle, Kenny Bernstein, Frank
Oglesby's Mello Yello Mustang and Shirl Greer.

TODAY'S VIDEO CLASSIC MOMENT

This classic video piece comes from what we believe to be the Flames of
Fear video on YouTube.com and features a few ugly racing accidents from
the 1970s. Among the mishaps are Bob Mayer’s tree wipe out, Raymond
Beadle’s Indy body separation and an ex Gene Snow flopper meets its
demise.

rough spots in the flick which opens with Big Daddy Don Garlits and
then goes into Pro Comp with Dale Armstrong's AA/DA. Then a good
portion of Modified eliminator ensues with a sprinkling of the old
Modified Compact VWs and Karman Ghias. There's even a rare appearance
by the Chi-town Hustler.
