Nitro Time Machine: Watch Jim White Bust The 290mph Barrier In Funny Car and Chat Up Steve Evans Behind The Scenes!

This right here is some prime-cut goodness for those hardcore NHRA fans of “back in the day”. One of the neatest parts of my job with NHRA is the fact that I have the keys to the massive digital version of the video archive and in that archive is loads of footage that has never seen the light of day over the years. This is some of that. You are going to see the fun process of how TV was made back in the 1990s when stuff was not live. Jim White hammers a new national speed record, Steve Evans swoops in and the fun starts.

You will see Evans start and stop the interview a couple of times. The first one is because the audio is bad in the truck and they do it again. White mentions a “Cindy”. That is Cindy Harmon who was a longtime pit producer with Diamond P and someone who was just off-camera for most every interview that Evans or anyone else did from the pits of top end during this time period.

The fun of this video is the fact that it is raw and interesting because you are let into a process that you normally don’t see…even today.

    I was at the track in Dallas that day and saw Jim break the record, still have the Hawaiian Punch shirt with the elapsed time, speed and his signature on it. Eddie Hill, Lorie Johns and Jimmy Nix were all there as well. Good memories.
