If all else fails, wait til I turn sideways because the nose knows.
Yeah, drag racing grew up and left the grandfather tracks behind. But, new state of the art 1/8 & 1/4 mile tracks have opened since the '90s and a couple of those places was where I enjoyed puttin' my pedal to the metal '70 Challenger style.
The '90s were fun years for me in motor sports and it was in '91 that my interest in the sport was ignited. My brother Paul took this pic of me in front of Eddie and Ercie Hill's Pennzoil dragster at Englishtown, NJ (1991).
