All Photo's below are courtesy of James Fullingim, without him this wouldn't be possible.
With his initial contribution of photos hopefully this section will grow large enough so that
eventually I can have a site dedicated to Texas Drag Racing History.  Texas was rich with
some of the best Drag Racers in the country and they deserve their recognition.

Thanks to Don Ewald with helping to identify some of the cars

Far lane is "Boyd's Machine", near lane is Jim Nicoll

 

There were only 3 "trick cars" built. Jim Dunn, Huff & Allen and Lindley & McEwen. This
doesn't look like any of those. My guess is its a newer Larry Huff car in the older trailer.
