We think we’ve found the end of the internet in terms of vintage drag racing videos. This nearly hour long compendium of videos was produced by the Hurst Company and it chronicles the US Nationals and other large NHRA meets from 1965 through 1968. You’ll see Grumpy Jenkins in his first Chevy II, Mike Snivley in the Hawaiian, Rick Moroso running his iconic Corvette, and every other drag racing heavy of the era.
When you can actually watch Arlen Vanke and Wally Booth duke it out instead of seeing still photos, there’s nothing better. This is absolute drag racing history porn. If you love the golden era of the sport we cannot stress enough the coolness of this footage.
Enough babbling, here’s the goods!
