NHRA Sanair 1972: Our Last Blast Of Time Traveling Photos Into Drag Racing History

(Photos by Bob Boudreau) – Well we have finally come to the end of the well again with these great photos from NHRA Sanair 1972 by Bob Boudreau. We have been showing you them in doses over the last week and it has been a great way to look back at a fun race in NHRA history. We told you about the improbable win by Art Marshall in top fuel and some of the other neat accomplishments of the other racers who were at this event and now it is time to give you the final load of images that Bob shared.

It is pretty neat to see Don Schumacher’s Stardust ‘Cuda in action here as Don has just returned to the race track after fighting cancer for several months. Having the ability to speak with him at Gainesville it was refreshing to hear his take on things and see him back at the track after he was not at the first couple races of the year. Love him or hate him he has been one of the most influential forces in the sport for a very long time. He is a hard-nosed and smart business person, a dedicated owner, and someone who has an never ending need for striving to be the best. It all started on the race track though and because of his successes as an owner there are people who forget that he ever raced in the first place! This is proof of that facet of his career.

There are some great stock and super stock photos in here, some pro stock classics, and just a pile of different cars that you have not seen through your first couple “time travel” sessions this week. Enjoy this last blast and thanks again to Bob Boudreau for sharing these photos!

    Best paint, Chilly Willy; best pants, Jungle Pam; worst pants the Grump.
    It sucks getting old, but I am glad to have lived through that era. Stuff was so pure, the paint, the hand lettering & the women. Thanks for the memories Lohnes & Bob
