CLASSIC VIDEO: 1977 NHRA SUMMERNATS
CompetitionPlus.com has uncovered another classic drag racing video gem.
This time, courtesy of Diamond P Sports, we bring you coverage of the 1977 NHRA Summernationals in Englishtown, NJ. Travel back in time when the term Summernationals was one of the major and ALWAYS meant drag racing in July at the famed Raceway Park.
You'll see the legends in action ranging from drag racing's first lady Shirley Muldowney to "The Snake" Don Prudhomme. You'll also see dry hops and the high-winding Pro Stockers when small blocks and heavy flywheels were the norm.
Best of all you'll hear the golden tones of Dave McClelland and Steve Evans.
Thanks to the forward-thinking of former Funny Car racer Ron Colson this video exists. Colson's Colson Communications was responsible for shooting and producing this video, which back in the day was cutting edge for a drag racing presentation. - https://t.co/iUnGWz6r33 pic.twitter.com/tmPWzGRWw1— Competition Plus (@competitionplus) May 2, 2020
