STORYTELLERS ENCORE - BILL DONER TELLS THE STORY OF "YOU HAVE GOT TO SEE THIS"

We lost Bill Doner in August 2019, but through our archives at Storytellers his memory lives on.

Doner is drag racing's best storyteller, hands down. The legendary promoter of the 1970s, all but controlled Funny Car racing on the west coast and as Gary Densham once said, "If you wanted to match race a Funny Car on the west coast, you had to go through him because he owned the whole west coast."

Drag racing's premiere Funny Car racers Don Prudhomme and Jungle Jim Liberman knew this all too well. 

With this said, this is one story you do not want to miss. 

In the words of Doner, "You gotta see this!"

A CAJUN WEEKEND CLASSIC: 1984 NHRA CAJUN NATIONALS

From the onset of this presentation of the annual pilgrimage to Baton Rouge, La., one could feel this wouldn't be the normal presentation of the NHRA Nationals.

The Ed McCulloch/John Collins Funny Car crash was one which hadn't been seen broadly in drag racing since the legendary Jeb Allen/John Weibe incident nearly a decade early.

There was all kinds of action featuring the legends Gary Beck, Mark Oswald, Joe Amato and a new Thunderbrid of Bob Glidden.
