STORYTELLERS - RICKIE SMITH TELLS THE STORY OF "IT'S DARK UP AT THE DUCK"

 

When they got together there was never a dull moment, and this certainly wasn't one.

SEASON 3, LEGENDS: THE SERIES ENCORE - THE LEGEND OF JUNGLE PAM HARDY

Think about this.

Pamela Hardy, more commonly as Jungle Pam, was in drag racing for only four short years, yet her name remains iconic nearly four decades later. That's major longevity for someone whose main claim to fame was backing up a race car while scantily clad.

Jungle Pam ran the roads as the yin to Jungle Jim Liberman's yang. She was the salt to his pepper. We think you get the drift.

"I'm excited for the drag racing community to ride along with me in my road to becoming a professional drag racer, and also see the world of fixing and flipping homes," Ashley said. "Both are exciting and challenging in their own ways. We definitely had some drama, even fire. You’ll have to watch the episode to see if the fire was in a house, at the track or both!”

STORYTELLERS ENCORE - NICKY BONINFANTE TELLS THE STORY OF "I DID A BAD THING"

VIDEO - THE DAY A V6 RAN PRO STOCK

Sometimes the best laid plans on paper just don’t jibe with politics.

Buddy Ingersoll of Ziegler, Ill., knows that to be an accurate statement.

A little over 22-years ago, with the blessings of the IHRA’s tech department, Ingersoll began entering Pro Stock events with his turbocharged, 260-inch Buick Regal. This was fine until he leaned on the locals and started running quick in qualifying and even worse, started winning rounds.

Ingersoll reached the final round of the 1986 IHRA Fall Nationals in Bristol, Tenn., and afterwards found himself banished back to NHRA’s Competition eliminator. If it hadn’t been for a burned up clutch in the final round against Pro Stock icon Bob Glidden, he might have been tarred and feathered in the pits.

This classic YouTube video features the ESPN coverage of this event.

This was not exactly an easy time in American history. The cost of a barrel of crude oil increased ten-fold, and the gas companies then passed on the price increase to the consumer. The controversial U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War drew to a close. Even the Professional Racers Organization went head to head with the NHRA's Labor Day tradition in Indy with a professional only race in Tulsa, Ok.

However, on one Sunday afternoon, in Muncie Ind., all was well in the world. At least it was for those who made the trip out to Mid-America Raceway for the IHRA Northern Nationals. One look at this video and you will see just how far drag safety has come since then.
According to noted drag racing historian Bret Kepner, this clip is taken from the repackaging of Bud Lindemann's Chicago-based "Car & Track" syndicated TV series which aired from 1968-1975. Speedvision rebroadcasted many of the original shows from 1993-1997. This nearly 10 minute video has Top Fuel racers Dick LaHaie, Paul Longenecker, Dale Funk, Pat Foster, Jim Paoli and Al Hanna.
