Very interesting video about drag racing history hosted by Dick Enberg. It's a bit long at 47+ minutes but there's some neat footage from back in the day.

Fantastic video! Great footage of the drag racing legends back in the day! The Wally Parks interview was priceless.

Along that same line, here is a piece done for network television back in the early 70's featuring the 1970 NHRA World Finals at Dallas Intl Motor Speedway called 'For Love Or Money'. This is a great professionally produced video that highlights the sport at a great time in it's history and in our own backyard! The track was located in Lewisville on the east side of I-35E at the Hebron/Round Grove Road exit. The track only survived 4 years but made it's mark. This video hits home for me because this was the first big drag race I ever attended when my father took me. Of course I had a camera in my hand and with this video and my pictures, it preserves a special time for me.
