During the early years, major sponsorships were unheard of. Drag racing was a new and emerging sport and everyone was still an amateur racer. We all worked our day jobs and worked nights getting our cars ready for weekend races. Our dedication to the sport was total and our efforts geared toward making our cars go faster. Very few racers in the day had unlimited resources to prepare their cars for the pilgrimage to the drag strip. We all worked with the resources we had and it was a Great Time to be in Drag Racing.
