Synopsis: In the 1950s and 1960s, drag racing was an exciting new sport that anyone with a car could participate in. Based on their equipment, the participants' cars were assigned to specific classes. This structure made it possible to compete against others with similar equipment, and for the most talented tuners and drivers to become National Champions and/or World Record holders in their class.
This class format encouraged amateur participation on a level never before seen. Drag racing was a popular hobby for many, and their competition vehicles were typically warmed-over street cars that had been strategically upgraded to the limits of their specific class. This made drag racing wildly popular and amazingly attainable. The end of the class structure meant a great loss in the sport's popularity, but these amazing times will never be forgotten.
Stock-class drag racing is celebrated in this new book, with hundreds of vintage color photographs showing the way it used to be. If you were a fan or participant back in the day, or are a lover of vintage drag cars, Junior Stock: Stock Class Drag Racing 1964-1971 is a book you'll thoroughly enjoy.
From the Back Cover: The early days of organized drag racing saw the need to group cars of similar potential into classes to encourage competitive racing. As time passed and the sport evolved, a wide range of classes were organized, pitting cars with similar power-to-weight ratios against one another. Older cars were lined up against newer models, and lighter-weight cars with six cylinders could be paired against heavier models with V-8s. Depending on how class breaks were organized, the car you drive daily could be a contender, if it were well-tuned and you had some talent behind the wheel.
This is the story of the Junior Stock classes, which blossomed in the 1960s and were pretty much killed in 1971 when the NHRA implemented a new "10-year" rule, specifying that cars more than ten years old were no longer able to compete. The era of competitive early-1950s Oldsmobiles and Hudsons and dominant 1955–1957 Chevys was over, and so were the average guy’s chances at winning a class trophy. This colorful era spawned many of the legendary drag racers we remember today, including Grumpy Jenkins, Jere Stahl, Wayne Jesel, Arlen "Akron" Vanke, and teams such as The Ramchargers.
