Fire Nitro Rubber and Smoke
Bob McClurg’s Drag Racing Memories captures this era from the starting line to the finish line with many unpublished photos straight from McClurg’s impressive archives.
Through extensive photo captions he tells the st…ories of the cars, the racers, and the events that made drag racing such a great sport. McClurg shares his recollections of top racers like Don “The Snake” Prudhomme, “Big Daddy” Don Garlits, Ronnie Sox, “Dyno Don” Nicholson, Tom “Mongoose” McEwen, Tommy Ivo, Connie Kalitta, and dozens more, along with detailed insights into the incredibly cool machinery that these heroes of the quarter mile pedaled down the track.
Everything from both front-and rear-engine dragsters to Funny Cars, gassers, altereds, Pro Stocks, and even exhibition cars are included in this action-packed book. The sights, smells, and sounds of the
golden age of drag racing come to life through these photos and provide a guaranteed trip down memorylane for any drag racing fan.
