Then:  Burdess & Schmidt

Indianapolis, U.S. Nationals 1970: You cannot believe the pride I felt, sitting in the stands when John Burdess from Hanna City, Ill. pulled to the line for ‘Little Eliminator’!  John was a local racer to me, running and winning regularly at Tri State Dragway. As can be seen, the car was a classic.

Then:  Selkirk & Bork

Cordova, Ill. ‘World Series of Drag Racing’, 1964:  The Supercharged Eliminator honors were won by the team of Selkirk & Bork with their A/GS ’33 Willis. Pictured are Gordon Selkirk (with trophy), Saul Bork, and Jim Selkirk.  This Olds powered creation was a ‘hit’ throughout the mid-west including Kahoka, Mo. (Photo courtesy of Mike Coker)
