With the Lucas Oil Drag Race Series fast
approaching, check out this very early Super Stock battle (dated either 69, 70
or 71) at Firebird between the famed Riddler and Old Trapper Plymouth
Cuda's. Fast forward some three decades and start making your plans for the
oldest major drag racing event in the Pacific Northwest as the 34th Annual
Ignitor Division 6 Opener returns to Idaho's capital city on April 15th-18th.
Of interest in this photo - check out the vintage Newtronic's
"photocell" timing system at the start line, chief starter Joe
Allred, and "Palmer" for Sheriff sign on the bulleye fence (plus the
tower clock featuring a RC Cola insignia).
