These are some of the folks and cars from NHRA at Phoenix. I have a whole album at Ofoto. I tried to shoot some of the class winners. Folks will have to use NHRA communications to figure out the classes.

One guy who needs no introduction is Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins, my hero and idol in the '60s. I haven't been this close to him in about 35 years. If I never take another pic of a racer, I'm happy to have taken these pics.
Enjoy the rest...
