New York National Speedway ran four cars at a time, as did Detroit (Same owner).
The craziest four-lane drag race consisted of Art Arfons and three other Jet Cars racing at once. I believe it was Dragway 42 in Michigan back around 1964.
See if you can find out the details.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Chevy in the 1320 column in the four abreast report actually a '62? (My grandad had a '62) Also, is that Smokey Yunick to the right of the row?

"The IHRA needs all of the cars it can get, allowing traction control will only benefit their program. For that matter considering the fact that their Top Fuel shows are often embarrassingly lame they ought to make traction control legal for that class."
This is one of the most offensive statements I have read on this site in a while. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like the IHRA top fuel guys have stepped up this year especially and put on great side by side racing all year. Sunday racing at Martin was consistent 4.70s-4.90s at 300 mph all day including a 4.67 at 319 mph by Bruce Litton for the #1 spot on Friday. Maybe I am misreading the above statement, but it seems to be pretty straightforward. If you don’t like the racing, keep up with another association but don’t go and insult the racers of a particular association who bust their butts to put on a good show.
Thank you for your time.
