(By Greg Rourke) – Imagine being 13 years old and getting a job at US30 Dragstrip in Indiana. I recently met a man who did exactly that. His job was assisting in the parking lot, but this also gave him an all access pass to that fabled quarter mile. He brought his Instamatic along one day. When I told him about BangShift, he offered to share his photos.
Back in the day all the big teams raced at US30. They had Wednesday night funny car races that rivaled the California tracks. I’m guessing these shots are from one of those days.
