The late Leland Kolb during the 1972 March Meet.



Rare shots of Garlits "sidewinder" Swamp Rat in 1978. The idea was not new and was short lived in this application. Above Big appears to be telling the fans the method behind his madness. This had to be OCIR as Irwindale closed in 1977. Starter Larry Sutton and his assistant Richard Schmidt in the background.






The late Ernie Hall at SIR in 1976. Ernie was a first class gentleman, hard racer and all around nice guy. His early demise was a great loss to his many friends and drag racing as a whole. To the very end he stayed with his Donovan power plant.
