Drag racing was nothing more than a media step child until NHRA cut a deal with ABC Wide World of Sports to cover two events a year to be aired on national TV. Needless to say, the broadcast equipment was archaic by todays standards but it did get our sport out there.

Keith Jackson began his career as a broadcaster in 1952, became a radio news correspondent for ABC News Radio and sports director of ABC Radio West in 1964 before joining ABC Sports in 1966. He covered many NHRA events for the networks Wide World of Sports program, including the Winternationals and the U.S. Nationals at Indy.
