Fuel bikes at Maple Grove Drag-O-Way, summer of 1971.
The bikes are actually racing in the picture, not doing burnouts. Back then the fuel bikes would put
their front wheel against a wall in the back area and then smoke the tire with the wall stopping the bike from moving.
Just to the left of the bikes were small wooden stands with just a few spectators in them.
The tracks look so different today.
