RARE DRAG RACING VIDEO - 1985 PRO-AM NATIONALS, ROCKINGHAM, NC
The 1985 Winston IHRA Drag Racing Series action was about as exciting as it could get. This traditional stop on the eight-race drag racing series in Rockingham, NC, brought all the action via its ESPN broadcasts produced by Masters Entertainment. In this era, the IHRA was heavy on the bodied cars was a 16-car field for Funny Cars and its exciting brand of Pro Stock featuring unlimited displacement engines.
This broadcast, one of four scheduled for the season, is chock full of action, whether it's the Pro Funny Car division or the Mountain Motor Pro Stockers. This event was the last for Dale Pulde's Miller Beer Trans-Am as it squares off against the veterans Don Prudhomme, Kenny Bernstein, and Billy Meyer.
Over in Pro Stock, the event marks the first for Bruce Allen as the class still reels from the loss of Lee Shepherd, the defending series champion. If anything, Tommy Mauney's wild ride makes more than worth the price of admission.
Additionally, complete sportsman final rounds make this a much watch.
