By now, you should have read our great interview with Jon Lundberg, the truly great drag racing announcer from the golden era of the sport. Lundberg was called the “Voice of Drag Racing” during his time because he announced everywhere and he also lent his voice to movies, records, ads, and whatever else was necessary. This video is one that he did the voice over work for.
The movie is called, “Drag Racing: Sport of the People” and to our untrained eye it appears to be a promotional film for the United States Drag Team or perhaps for the sport in general. It would have been a handy tool to use when pitching large corporate sponsors due to all the information contained in the movie.
The footage is totally awesome featuring all those names we love from the past in virtually every category. The voice over guy ain’t bad either. Oh yeah, there are just a couple of hotties caught on film in here as well.
Tune in for a great look at drag racing circa the early 1970s.
