New Greatness! New England Dragway Candids of Jungle Pam, Shirley, Jungle Jim Insanity, More!

(Photos by Bob Boudreau) – We’re verging on the speechless with this latest group of photos from Canadian photographer Bob Boudreau. As it is NHRA New England Nationals week we’re looking back at these photos and smiling big. It should be mentioned that Bob was very gracious in letting the NHRAonFOX team use some of his photos for our upcoming broadcasts this week and it will be really neat to show them off to a television audience.

As we have been telling you, Boudreau would venture down to New England Dragway in Epping, NH with some frequency in the early to mid-1970s and shoot photos at some of the big races the track held each summer. This batch of photos from ’73 contains some never before published candids of Shirley Muldowney, Jungle Pam Hardy, Jungle Jim’s car pitching an entire wheel/tire combo far down track, some of the era’s gnarliest funny cars, sportsman action and pit photos, just to mention some of the stuff you’ll see in here.

We’re not going to waste any more of your time yapping about the photos. These are as amazing as the rest we’ve been sharing from Bob’s collection and some maybe better. Seriously. Hit the link below to see them all.

      Saw Pam at Bruce Larsons a few years ago and still looking good. Very nice and approachable. You just have to love her.

    In one photo looking self-conscious and unsure, and in the very next the queen of all she saw. What great photos. Jungle Pam signed my wife and I an autograph at Famosa a while back, what was cool was how she seemed to enjoy the moment for each person she did it for.

    Early-’70s funny cars and rock ‘n roll, nothing like it before or since.

    Good to see funny cars that look close to their original models. The current ones suck, a does pro stock.
