In the world
of racing there are so many things that take place faster than
a twinkle of an eye, and it's only because of today's camera
technology we are able to capture these magic moments forever.
In this frame it appears as if this boat is dancing on the water
with only the prop blades making contact with the fluid surface
Sometimes all the elements of
a magical moment naturally come together as if it were predestined
by a day dream of sorts. The "Strange Brew" NE1 dragster
is an image of trouble in electric blue and if you don't watch
out it will stick with you. Dave Gruzen in the Strange Brew,
thrilling what's inside of your taking us back in time to the
good days gone by and rejuvenating incredible some memories.
The battle scared "Black
Max" warrior has catapulted owner and driver Gil Valencia
into countless battles down the Famoso black top, however it
appears this mission was more reminiscing of a NASA launch to
the moon. You go Gilâ¦ never lift!
Nostalgia Top Fuel pilot Terry
Cox puts his burn-out boot to the test and lays down a solid
pair of black tracks at the 2009 Dragfest event. Up close and
personal shots like this give an incredible perspective that
you can not get from the pine. The earth shaking intensity that
surrounds the moment is reverently captured here within!
With a full load of nitro in
the tank and 3,000 ponies at the touch of his beckoned command,
2009 Nostalgia Funny Car Champion Garrett Bateman is up on the
Goodyear's as he launches to yet another victory into the Boise
Oh Lord, deliver
us from boredom; this nitro gulping, fire belching piece of mechanical
eye candy dignifies the spirit of short wheel base fuel racing
and defiles the theory of the shortest distance between two points
is a boring ride!
Undoubtedly the toughest kid
on the AA/FA block is the legendary "Winged Express".
Voted the 2nd most popular car in all of Drag Racing history,
Mike "the Nitro Warrior" has virtually no competition
in the burnout category! In addition, the "Wing" is
the longest running car in Drag Racing history as well; celebrating
50 years of spectacular thrills and chills this 2010 season!
In the mid to late 60's there
were many Front Engine Dragsters that gave the big boys a run
for their money; Jack McCloud's "Poachers" was one
such car. Driven in the day by a young man named Walt Stevens;
now, three decades later the two have compellingly re-united.
Once again Stevens finds himself behind the butterflies of his
old friend as he cruises down memory lane at the top end of Famoso
The top end of any Dragstrip
is perhaps one of the most deadly areas on the property. The
ground around you is littered with the debris of countless tales
of woe; however it is also one of the most magical strips of
real estate in the racing world. To witness a 200 MPH car rocketing
towards you at full throttle then hitting the chutes is nothing
less than exciting. Ron Johnson's "Barn Stormer" hangs
the laundry just as it did many times back in the early 60's
and brings the past to life once again in 2009!

The transition from the past
into the future seems to always collide with an experimental
license that can also be interrupted into some sort of artistic
translation. The "Champion Speed Shop" Nostalgia Top
Fuel dragster has certainly pushed the envelope on that theory.
Second generation nitro pilot Adam Sorokin lights up the late
afternoon skies over central California with his hard charge
down Jack Williams Boulevard!
