Exclusive Fallon Photo CD
The only successful event ADRA ever held...
bonus photos from ADRA - Cordova, IL)
The ill-fated (fraud) ADRA
is a chapter of drag racing history most people would like to
forget. As much as we wanted it to be a real deal... it was simply
too good to be true. However, the $10,000 to win pro purses brought
an incredible field of cars to their first (the beginning of
the end) race at Fallon, NV and there were plenty of photographers
there to cover the action. Now over 1100 of the best of the best
are available to you in hi-res files on CD for just $14.95.
Long story short - ADRA (American
Drag Racing Association) was a great idea stolen and implemented
by the evil mind of a slick con man. It's lifespan was slightly
longer than a house fly. MANY people lost money and faith in
promoters - not a new thing.
That said... in spite of one
Bill Chapman (if that was his real name) and the suckers who
backed him, the ADRA inaugural event - held on Easter weekend,
2001 (how dumb is that?) - was one hell of a drag race. Maybe
one of the best nostalgia Top Fuel races ever.
