CLASSIC VIDEO: 1980 NHRA SUMMERNATS

Take a trip back in time when the SUMMERS meant hot and fast drag racing at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. You'll see the dry hops of old and the legends including Jeb Allen, Dick LaHaie, Don Prudhomme, Billy Meyer and Pro Stock legends Bob Glidden and the late Lee Shepherd.

You'll even see the sportsman finals and a good look at the legendary Wayne County Opel A/Gasser. For some reason, the broadcast missed the Pro Comp final round.

Another great trip back in time with Diamond P producing the show for ABC's Wide World of Sports.

VIDEO FLASHBACK - 1981 NHRA SPRINGNATIONALS

There was one thing you could always count on when it came to racing at National Trail Raceway located outside of Columbus, Ohio. More times than not it would rain on your high horsepower parade.

The NHRA recognized the true meaning of sideways rain during the 1981 event which was rained out and returned the following weekend where it rained more through severe thunderstorms. While today's drag racing coverage is accustomed to video at night. Back then, producer Diamond P, did the best they could with the resources available.
