the tires a Irwindale in 1973.
My late friend John Collins probably
survived more crashes than anyone in drag racing history. Mostly
for no fault of his own. from dragsters to funny cars he had
the misfortune of totaling 3 dragsters and 5 funny cars without
major injury. This was his second flopper incident, the first
at Lions, this at Bakersfield in 1972.
The Beach City Chevrolet Vette
squaring off with Roland Leong's Hawaiian at Irwindale in 1970.
Chances are Pat Foster was in the Vette, no clue what sparkplug
driver Roland had in the Hawaiian.
