Let's set the stage. Shirley Muldowney was the defending Top Fuel champion, but a young Jeb Allen was coming into his own. Don "The Snake" Prudhomme was on his way to another series championship in Funny Car, but on this weekend there was a mounting opposition to the Snake's dominance. And who could have ever thought what would happen when Bob Glidden showed up with a Ford Fairmont.
Enjoy the day, or at least an hour of it, with this gem.
