Drag Racing Story of the Day!

Payin' the Bills at San Fernando

By Walt Stevens

I remember going out to San Fernando drag strip and making some money to pay the bills. We used to talk Harry Hibler into putting up some money for top time. We ran OK but not always the fastest. When I was driving The Trip, we would get to 1200 feet and get on the brakes real hard to the get the front wheels to come off the ground and clear the first set of lights. My rear wheels would trip the first beam. Then I'd time it so the front wheels would be back on the ground to trip the second beam and we would set top time. 

Harry would get pissed and would come down and get on me big time for doing that. But he paid. We won some there at "The Pond." We won 13 weeks in a roooooooooooow when I drove The Outcast. That little 354 liked the track. I would drive it out to about half-track and then get with it. Would smoke them old M&Hs, so we lifted. Miss those good old days.
