Cheyenne

  • Cheyenne Dragway, 1967-69
 
During the spring and summers of 1967, 1968 and 1969, I raced at the Cheyenne drag strip and in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. I first raced D/G '57 Pontiac and then in 1968-69, I ran in O/SA with a '60 Oldsmobile. With the Olds I won class many times. I wish I had those trophies now. Unfortunately because of many moves over the years, they have all disappeared. I would love to just have one or two of them back.

Douglas

  • Douglas International Raceway
 
I raced in Dougles a few times in Division 5 with my Top Alki Dragster. I remember on one run almost hitting an antelope in the top end of the track. There was a lot of nowadays big-gun racers: Cruz Pedregon, Tommy Johnson, Jr., to name a few. Where the strip was located in town, the motels across the street had people watching the race from there. The people that ran the race was great to work with and good fans also. The track had great traction. I just had to put a lot of overdrive in the blower.
