CLASSIC VIDEO: 1979 NHRA CAJUN NATIONALS
Travel back in time when the NHRA visited the Cajun capitol of Baton Rouge, La. You'll see drop hops and five-second Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Cars. In this video, you will see up-and-coming Funny Car racers Kenny Bernstein and John Force. The legends are also featured, including Shirley Muldowney, Kelly Brown, Billy Meyer and Bob Glidden. As a bonus, rain forced the event into nighttime competition, providing an example of old-school header flames.
