BangShift Gallery: A Tour of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum

One of the primary reasons that the NHRA Heritage Series and the great Hot Rod Reunions exist is for the benefit of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum. Located in Pomona, California, on the same grounds as the historic drag strip, it is an amazing place filled with both the history of NHRA drag racing and lost of of great items honoring the history of racing in America.

A while back we cruised the museum with our trusty camera and clicked our way through the building. In this gallery you will see some truly historic race cars and recreations of race cars like Dick Kraft’s “Bug” widely regarded as the primordial model for the dragster, and Doug Thorley’s wild Chevy II match race car. The place is wall to wall awesome.
