Dave, that's awesome footage. I went to every one of the sportsnationals back then. What great memories. Seeing Randal Boles' interview was classic!! What a great way to start my day! Now, I'm all jacked up about working in my hotrod today.Thanks for the motivation cheers king

Dry hops for the win !
Modified eliminator was awesome.

The 1976 Sportsnationals is the event where I got hooked on drag racing. Very Happy

It took me 37 years later to be able to run at the Sportsnationals.

That is truly DRacing at it's finest. If they still televised it like that today, I would tune in.Smile
