Don Prudhomme Story Part 1
Drag Racing





48-Year Itch!
When the stars line up in front of me, I just have to record it. I have no choice. And this was one of those moments. I don't know if this will ever happen again. I certainly hope it will--and in front of the grandstands at some selected NHRA events. For you see, you just don't see this happening at all-- when you look back at how unlikely it is that the car and the driver would still be around in 2012! Take the driver, Don Prudhomme. How many times did he make full passes in a top fuel dragster or funny car? And for how many years? In short, it's a miracle that he is in one piece, after all that--and he is! Thank goodness! Then the car: The Greer, Black, and Prudhomme dragster, built by Kent Fuller and raced from 1962 through 1964, with the original partners, it ran up an incredible record at southern California tracks of 81 wins and only 8 loses! (According to Phil Burgess) Then lengthened--bought and raced as the "Bonanza" for a while, eventually stripped of it's motor and left sitting for years. Restored by Steve Davis, bought by Bruce Meyer--How likely is it that it would be allowed to join up with "Snake" for this moment? Pretty unlikely--except that it's owner Bruce Meyer, is a good friend of Don's, and after hearing about Rick MacDonald, they gave him the nod to bring the car to the track, and push start it to life. Now the driver could have been someone else....but it wasn't. That's what makes this fire up so significant. And like I said: All we can do is hope that this mind blowing moment will happen again at a track near you. And if you hear they are coming, better "Make the Scene". For the chance may not come again. Like an old legendary cowboy on a white horse in your local parade. And all you need to do is what you did when you were a kid: Sit on the curb and watch him go by. Perfect. :)

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks line up behind the Christmas Tree.

Jungle Jim and Jungle Pam - Drag Racing Legends
Years before John Force arrived on the scene, drag racing's original flamboyant showman was "Jungle Jim" Liberman; a larger-than-life individual whose flaming burnouts, glib personality, and boundless energy helped endear him to fans in a manner that eluded other drivers with better winning records. Liberman was much more than a touring professional; with his wild wheelstands, 100-mph backups from burnouts, stubborn refusal to lift on even the most out-of-shape runs, and his curvaceous companion, "Jungle Pam" Hardy, Liberman provided all the entertainment of a traveling circus. Liberman's life, like the lives of many fast-living icons of youth such as James Dean, Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin, was as short as it was fast-paced. He died at the age of 32 after suffering fatal injuries in a head-on collision with a bus on Sept. 9, 1977. His premature passing left a void in the sport that wasn't replaced until Force's explosive personality emerged in the late 1980s. Today, the legend of "Jungle Jim" lives on with "Jungle Pam," his constant companion in his heyday who titillated race fans with her skimpy outfits and provocative on-track actions. "At every race track that I go to," said Hardy, "everyone comes up and asks for my autograph. They ask what he was like and if he was as crazy as they've heard. The fans really miss him, and they miss the fun part of drag racing. The sport has become so professional now that there's no room for any of that anymore." "I was just 18 when I met him. I was still attending high school in West Chester, Pa., and had never been further away from home than the next town over. I was walking down the street one day, and here comes this yellow Corvette speeding down the street. This guy walks out, comes up to me, and says, "Hi, I'm Jim." I had never been to a drag race before, but the next thing I knew, we we're heading for his match race in Xenia, Ohio. He showed me how to back him up after the burnouts, and from then on, my life was just a whirlwind tour all over the country." Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song "American Girl" was released in 1977, the same year Jungle Jim passed away. Well she was an American girl Raised on promises She couldn't help thinkin that there Was a little more to life Somewhere else After all it was a great big world With lots of places to run to Yeah, and if she had to die Tryin' she had one little promise She was gonna keep Oh yeah, all right Take it easy baby Make it last all night She was an American girl It was kind of cold that night She stood alone on her balcony She could hear the cars roll by Out on 441 Like waves crashin' in the beach And for one desperate moment there He crept back in her memory God it's so painful Something that's so close And still so far out of reach Oh yeah, all right Take it easy baby Make it last all night She was an American girl This video was created from clips from the Diamond P video "Fabulous Floppers" and photos that I took of some of Jungle Jim's cars at 131 Dragway back in the '60s. The photos of Jungle Jim and Pam at 1:48, 1:53 and 1:59 are courtesy of Tom McCrea tmccrea. Photo at 2:36 is by Steve Scott. Other pictures are from unknown photographers.
