    Jerry Cox: one of the pioneers in the sport of motorcycle drag racing.
    First super charged Harley, just one of the many innovations that this man is responsible for.
    Dave Campos left the strip to go to the salt to PILOT the now, easy rider " streamliner " that was sponsored by two to three million bikers across the USA, to a land speed record of 322 mph

    It’s been many years since I raced my F/S ’65 Ford Galaxy 390 at Albuquerque Dragway. Of all the cars I enjoyed seeing it was Gene Flowers “No Problem” that I loved most. The way that bugger raised itself up on its haunches before dropping the hammer!!!

    Nice photos! Great nostalgia! Wonderful memories! Thank you!

    Hi Craig, The thin guy with the old injected dragster was Bob Pavioni. The "History of Albuquerque Dragway" is now 129 pages. 275 pictures mostly color. Stories and pictures of George Brazil in the book. Over 200 copies sold as of now. Almost everyone who has it likes it. Dale Schafer 505-296-5180

    I went to Highland High School from 1960 to 1963. I was in the Turtles car club, then the Lancers (long purple jackets), mostly guys from the South Valley. I helped build the original boundary fence around the strip. I never got to race at Albuquerque dragway, but did get to see George Brazil (age 57 or 58) run Top Fuel exhibitions there when it was just the paved strip. He had a blown, injected fueler. I think he was running about 160 mph in the quarter. There was also a tall, thin guy in one of those old style dragsters with an injected Chevy V-8 - I think on gas. As I recall, he ran about 130 mph in the quarter. Those were the ONLY dragsters at the time. I left Albuquerque in 1969 after graduating from UNM. I used to run my '51 Chevy with Corvette V-8 out on the illegal street strip near Speedway Park, mostly at night. Great Memories!
