Making Jets Respectable

Here is one of my favorite night "artsy" shots I would like to share with everyone. I want to congratulate two of my
Heroes and Friends on making it into the Hall Of Fame at the Garlits Museum: Steve Reyes and Roger Gustin. Steve's work inspired me before and after I started in this business. And Roger is one of the true Showmen and now Promoters that we have. I give them both a well deserved salute. The photo is from Englishtown in or about the '75-'77 range. It is the
Sherbits sponsored Jet Dragster. It was built by Romeo Palamides and was owned and driven by Roger during that time period.
