We’re a day late with this week’s Hump Day Holeshot, but we think we make up for our tardiness with possibly one of the coolest 8-minute clips of old school, true muscle car (and dragster) enthusiast drag racing from the Super Nationals held in Ontario, California in 1971. You might be thinking, “Hey 1971, that was a pretty dang good year for competitive drag racing.” And you’d be right.
You’ll be wowed with this footage of Ronnie Sox piloting the Sox & Martin ’70 Plymouth ‘Cuda (sporting a hard-hitting 426 HEMI and 4-speed rowed A833) to victory over Dick Oldfield’s “MoTown Missle” and Dick Landy’s ’70 Challenger. It’s a Mopar-lovers dream as the trend continues with Gene Snow’s funny car, “Rambunctious” wiping the floor with the field to take the championship. And for all those who love front engine dragsters, watch as dark horse, Rick Ramsey and his “California Charger” swoops from the outfield to take the win! Check out this video. You’ll thank us later!
