Another rare find from YouTube, we present to you the 1979 NHRA Winternationals from Pomona. Travel back in time when NHRA Winston Drag Racing was on the outskirts of Corporate America's takeover. These are the days when paint was king, and wraps were well off in the future.

You'll see the legends in the NHRA's three professional categories, and you will also see some of the old veterans pulling out the tricks of the trade.

As traditional as the season-opener was in Pomona; even more traditional was the ABC Wide World of Sports broadcast with Chris Economacki.
