VIDEO - A GAGGLE OF REALLY COOL DRAG RACING THEMED COMMERCIALS

Commercials are the life's blood behind television programming. In fact, there was a time when the commercials became just as entertaining as the National Football League's Super Bowl.

We had some extra time, so we set out on a journey to find some of the best drag racing-themed commercials. Here's a good number of what we found.. Watch them all because there are some downright entertaining pieces.

#LEGENDStheSERIES - THE LEGEND OF MIKE DUNN

 

He was the kid many watched grow up at the drag strip.

The kid, Mike Dunn, a winner in two professional categories, was a record-setting driver who took his career in the sport to a one-of-a-kind level.

Before he became a pro drag racer, he turned wrenches on those cars. He was a national event-winning driver in Top Fuel. Ditto behind the wheel of a Funny Car, with a ledger that includes a U.S. Nationals crown. He had top-five points finishes in both classes.

Dunn traded his firesuit for a business suit with a stint as an NHRA drag racing analyst on ESPN. He then set himself apart from others who reached those goals before him by serving a year-plus stint as the president of the rival IHRA.

The son of "Big" Jim Dunn, a nitro legend from the 1960s and 70s who remains a team owner and tuner, Dunn has been there, seen it all, done it all. Hear his unique perspective on where the sport has been, is and is heading in the Season 6 season opener of Legends: The Series.

#LOVETHISLIFE - THE KRISTA BALDWIN EDITION

CLASSIC VIDEO - SEVEN SECOND LOVE AFFAIR

 

Long before Rick Stewart flipped the switches at NHRA Drag Races as the official starter, he appeared in one of the more popular drag racing documentaries ever made.

Seven Second Love Affair was Les Blank’s first documentary/photography job shooting Drag Racers in Long Beach, CA, driving everything from hopped-up street stockers to supercharged dragsters.

In 1965 when the leading Top Fuel cars were stopping to the clocks at 220, this documentary follows the early days of Stewart as a drag racer trying his best to attain the world record.

This video was written and directed by Robert Abel with the music score by Canned Heat Blues Band.

IS THIS THE GREATEST DRAG RACING DRIVER MELTDOWN EVER?

Saying John Force is prone to a wide-open rant regularly is like saying the sun is hot to the touch.

At the 1989 NHRA Chief Nationals hosted by the Texas Motorplex, Force was as hot as the mid-day sun when race officials disqualified him in the first round for hitting the outer boundary (the retaining wall) against Ed McCulloch. The only problem was - Force didn't hit the wall.

#LEGENDStheSERIES PREVIEW - THE LEGEND OF MIKE DUNN

 

Are you ready for Season 6 of the highly acclaimed internet documentary series focusing on the legends of the drag strip?

Mike Dunn was absolutely correct in his assessment that many expected him to automatically graduate into the fuel racing ranks just because of his status as Jim Dunn's son. He did make his way into the fuel ranks but did so because he worked his way up from crewman to driver. The road was filled with bumps and bruises, but one which led to a career where he admittedly never spent a dime of his own money to participate.

This preview provides a glimpse of what is to come on April 16, 2020, at 8 PM, EST., when the new season debuts.

#LOVETHISLIFE - THE ANTHONY DICERO EDITION

 

Sit down for a hilarious and heartwarming one-on-one chat with "Nitro University" owner Anthony Dicero as he talks about his journey as teacher, mentor, crew chief, business owner and dad. Anthony opens up about his triumphs and struggles along the way, and about his relationships with some of the brightest stars in NHRA. Produced by Warren Evans of dragracer.tv.

CLASSIC VIDEO - LIFE IN THE QUICK LANE

This documentary is the perfect way to spend your time, thinking back to the days of yesteryear when drag racing had the wow power because it was still a virtually unknown commodity.

The legends were very much involved in 1979, from Don Prudhomme to Don Garlits to Shirley Muldowney. Drag racing was still wide enough open to command an audience for such a documentary which would usually air in the afternoons on weekend when three channel, black and white television were still in the majority.

This video has a little bit of everything from NHRA to AHRA, Top Fuel to Funny Car to Pro Stock. If you can excuse the audio sounds of big block automatic cars on obvious four-speed Modifieds, you will enjoy this class.
