PINING FOR THE PAST, AMERICAN STYLE
Nostalgia is a big deal in drag racing right now, with ever increasing field of nostalgia funny cars in various parts of the country, and incursions into the "old tyme" 1320 arena by established NHRA racers. The Quizzter seeks to go them all one better, recalling a day when true competition for drag racing sanctioning supremacy was being waged. Back then, it was NHRA VS AHRA, and for many a year, it was anybody's guess which august body would prevail. But time marches on and the winners have already written that history book, so let's have a five spot of American Hot Rod Association trivia. We've been here before, but why not go back for another taste? Dig in, 1320 freaks.
