The Age of Drag Racing with Dick Landy

Sometimes on a Tuesday afternoon in the middle of winter I have no clue what I’m going to write about for the day. January is tough because after the big Detroit Autoshow that’s it for months. Inevitably or maybe miraculously my phone will beep (actually it’s the road runner meep meep sound) and it will be a buddy of mine sending me a link saying “check this out!”

Most are neat or interesting videos but few are worthy of sharing. Today however is something really cool. It’s a video from “The Age of Drag Racing.” Now we don’t have the whole film unfortunately but we do have three parts of a film about the film. It features Dick Landy, some sweet old Mopar, and some epic vintage drag racing footage. You aren’t going to want to miss this.

If you don’t know the Age of Drag Racing was a film Chrysler made in 1971 as a promotional tool for their cars that were drag racing. It brought awareness to the sport and cemented racers like Dick Landry and Ronnie Sox as legends. Enjoy the videos.
