An ex racer's view of some historical footage
28 February 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I gave this an "8" from a ex racer's point of view. Its not a great movie but the classic footage of some of the cars that changed Drag Racing is fun to watch. These guys are the ones that put people in the stands and made Drag Racing a huge sport with spectators as well. No "Rice Rockets" or computers here. No nitrous to cover your shortcomings or mistakes. Just major horsepower with ground shaking excitement from the early years of legal Drag Racing.
