CLASSIC VIDEO: 1979 NHRA CAJUN NATIONALS

 

Travel back in time when the NHRA visit the Cajun capitol of Baton Rouge, La.  You'll see drop hops and five-second Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Cars. In this video, you will see up and coming Funny Car racers Kenny Bernstein and John Force. The legends are also featured, including Shirley Muldowney, Kelly Brown, Billy Meyer and Bob Glidden. As a bonus, rain forced the event into nighttime competition, providing an example of old school header flames.
