The beautiful soft light contrasts with the sheer other worldly  ferocity of these awesome ‘Top Fuel’ Rails during the 15th National Hotrod Association Nationals at Indianapolis on 3 September 1969…

There are no details on the captions of the cars and drivers, so interested to hear from any drag racing enthusiasts who may know who is who!

Checkout the YouTube footage of the meeting…Its an interesting period piece documentary in itself.

    Great pictures – the drag racing equivalent of Formula 1 circa 1955, just before the rear-engined dragsters made the front-engined cars obsolete.

      Indeed Graham! Have a look at the footage with the article, I’m not a big drag racing fan but the Top Fuel passes I’ve seen are amongst the most awesome of all of my motor racing spectator experiences ! Mark
