A CAJUN WEEKEND CLASSIC: 1984 NHRA CAJUN NATIONALS
From the onset of this presentation of the annual pilgrimage to Baton Rouge, La., one could feel this wouldn't be the normal presentation of the NHRA Nationals.
The Ed McCulloch/John Collins Funny Car crash was one which hadn't been seen broadly in drag racing since the legendary Jeb Allen/John Weibe incident nearly a decade early.
There was all kinds of action featuring the legends Gary Beck, Mark Oswald, Joe Amato and a new Thunderbrid of Bob Glidden.
Take a trip back to the glory days of NHRA when Moose's weekend never presented a dull moment.

We've unearthed a rare video of the American Hot Rod Association's Grand American Series. Long before there was Route 66 Raceway there was U.S. 30 Drag Strip in Gary, Indiana. - https://t.co/3mQRReqlHG pic.twitter.com/8Qae4Nq2rL— Competition Plus (@competitionplus) May 14, 2020
