drag racing's "tree"
.....an interesting "addendum" to earlier related posts about my ;"recorfd" with this fabulous car,my 1959 "hand built" 1959 Pontiac tri-power; and having ONLY ONE loss in my class(DSA) in 2 years racing; back in 1961 the races were started by "flagmen"(except at Thompson,Ohio where I didn't quite "master" the automatic "tree"(new at that time), so I came in "second"; back to the "drawing board. FUN SPORT... I need to give THANKS to a very good friend, BOBBY HUGHES, who did TONS of work on my 1959 Pontiac in getting it ready for the races on Sunday. and enabling me to be REGIONAL CHAMPION (Penna, Ohio, and New York) in 1962 THANKS MR. BOBBY HUGHES; WE HAD FUN.
