9781932494259: Quarter Mile Chaos: Images of Drag Racing Mayhem

Quarter-Mile Chaos looks at the treacherous side of drag racing's golden age. Almost 200 rare and stunning photographs from the late 1960s and early to mid 1970s capture terrifying fires, explosions, and crashes, all by-products of the quest to go faster. Quarter-Mile Chaos is full of up close and personal documentation of the perilous task of reaching the 1,320-foot mark first. Armed with just a couple cameras and some film, veteran drag racing photographer Steve Reyes shot some of the most dramatic and eye-catching pictures of these quarter-mile warriors. Reyes roamed the nation's hazardous strips in search of the perfect action photo. The result is some of the most breathtaking drag racing imagery ever recorded depicting out-of-control demolition and devastation during drag racing's most entertaining era.

Review:

Georgia Drag Racing, March 2006, reviewed by David Dilbeck

"In my opinion, Steve Reyes is the best ever at capturing drag racing action photos - especially high speed crash and burn shots. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the photos and I think you will be too!"



Rod & Custom, September 2006

"The photos are astonishing and sometimes heart stopping, delivering a close-up look that you could never get from the safety of the grandstands."
