Money, Money, Money... or Why Drag
are Always Pulling Up Their Pants

The immaculate Astro Magic Car restoration is what keeps sucking Bill Pitts' wallet out of his pants! Photo thanks to Bill Pitts
When you get the chance, open up the butterflies on the hat and, with a
flashlight, if you'll look REAL CLOSE, on the inside lip... You'll see a
row a TEETH.
I get out the dental floss every once in a while and clean out the little
pieces of dollar bills that get stuck there. Seems like every time Morris
and me start the car, I walk by the front of the hat and ssssssssssssssuck!
The thing pulls the wallet right outta my back pocket. Darndest thing I ever
saw. But THEN I started watchin' more closely as I walked around the pits
and sure enough -- IT'S HAPPENIN' TO EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!

Used ta think it was just some kinda affliction common to all drag
racers, 'cause ever' body that's doin' it has a FLAT BUTT ('cept Laurie
course). I pointed that out ta Morris, and he said: THEY DON'T HAVE FLAT
BUTTS, YOU IDIOT! THEY'RE JUST MISSIN' THEIR WALLETS!!
"Oh," I said, "So THAT'S why Kalitta's always pullin' up
It's a fact...
