Bob Snow, Jr., took this photo at
Ubly Dragway in 1965. I have many unpublished photos of famous drag
cars from 1966 to 1978 from Tri-City Dragway in Saginaw, Michigan. I
worked at Tri-City Dragway (Division 3) as the starter and in the
tech department. I have collected old drag racing information,
pictures, drag cars, parts and memorabilia for over 30 years! Many
of the parts are now on the correctly restored drag cars across the
country. There is a great group of people that have been doing this
long before the "get-rich-quick Johnny come latelys"
showed up in the past 10 to 15 years. These guys have a real passion
for this and they know who they are, I sure do!
