Drag Racing’s Rebels – How the AHRA Changed Quarter-Mile Competition
When the NHRA banned the use of nitromethane in 1957, the AHRA approved it. When NHRA banned aircraft engine-powered dragsters, the AHRA approved them. When the NHRA said no to the emerging Funny Car class in 1965, the AHRA said yes. These and other outlawed cars by the NHRA gave the AHRA the distinction as the rebel association, and drag racing fans loved it. In this 192-page book, author Doug Boyce tells the story of the rise and eventual downfall of the AHRA. Hundreds of color and black and white photos make this a must-have for any vintage drag racing fan.
