CLASSIC DRAG RACING ON CBS SPORTS SPECTACULAR
Travel back in time when drag racing's presentation was largely syndicated, and in this instance featured in sports variety shows. Before there was ESPN or any of the 24 hour sports channels, drag racing coverage was divided up between the three major networks. In this showing, CBS Sports Spectacular, the equivalent to ABC's Wide World of Sports, presented coverage of the NHRA Springnationals in Columbus, Ohio.
This race was chock full of excitement from the veterans, including Big Daddy Don Garlits, Raymond Beadle and the terror of Pro Stock Bob Glidden. You'll see exciting action including Jeg Coughlin Sr.'s scary crash while racing Top Fuel.
