RARE 1983 NHRA CAJUN NATIONALS TV BROADCAST
The NHRA's annual visit to the Bayou in Louisiana was one always race fans could count on for entertainment. Whether it was its colorful promoter Norman "Moose" Pearah or Funny Cars staging a boycott, the 1983 edition didn't disappoint nor did it keep folks from starting a ruckus.
One of the sport's more prominent two-car teams had a plan. One team was to be a part-time effort, and the other would be a championship-chasing monster. However, the "extra" car outperformed its role and when the two met in the final; well, things didn't go as planned. We won't spoil it for you.
You'll see the legends of the day including defending Top Fuel champion Shirley Muldowney, Gary Beck, and an up-and-coming Mark Oswald.
