its first two decades drag racing was somewhat free of strict
rules, corporate influence or formal protocol. Overall, drag
racers were not politically correct - in fact, just the opposite.
Most of the NHRA was made up of racers and not wimpy accountants.
There were no "cookie cutter" cars accompanied with
hospitality rigs. Until the 70s the majority of us used open
trailers and carried our spare parts in milk crates. From the
early 1950's through the 1970's the race cars were, for the most
part, financed out of pocket and innovation was foremost and
many paid the ultimate price for those innovations. Very few
racers broke even - let alone made a living... for what other
reason would we do it? We loved it!
