Sam Miller went from East Coast match race fuel racer to become the quickest and fastest funny car racer in the world with his Vanishing Point entries. When Rocket Cars were outlawed in the States, Sammy took his act to England, where he became a national treasure in an adopted country. Here are links to tributes to Sammy Miller, the first by Tog and Sharkman of the excellent Eurodragster.com. RIP, Sammy. We'll never forget you.
