Drag Racing Story of the Day!

Harry Hibler in the Lights

By Pat Foster

Harry Hibler ran a tight ship at "The Pond." He used to be able to get his show off before the church ladies called the police at exactly 3 p.m. To this end, he mostly hung out between the "Hot Pits" and the edge of the strip. Well, one Sunday, there was some problem with the finish line lights, so our hero goes out to re-align the cells on the centerline of the track. Missed communications between Harry and the starter (Jimmy Scott) caused Jimmy to send the final pair of top fuel cars. 

Not to worry, they were only John Wenderski with a 3/4 arm in his Dave Zueschel powered Black Beauty and Don Moody in his like-powered Zueschel-Fuller-Moody car. These hot rods were not weak sucks and had a habit of boiling the hides to well past half-track. Both were also using 16-20 foot ring slot chutes. Harry is crouched down IN the lights, looks up, sees his life pass before his eyes, stays right there as those two wild men fight it out for the win. All ended as if George Lucas were filming it with stunt doubles and a huge budget, cut, print. Bet you money, Harry's white pants were "spotted" to say the least.
