Funny Car Match Racing - East by: John Shapiro (as in East of the Mississippi) The 3rd book from John Shapiro (Ohio Drag Racing Memories Volume I & II), Funny Car Matching Racing East is a unique look at the fuel floppers that roamed the Eastern, Midwest and Southern tracks during the late 60’s and 70’s.   These “self sponsored” asphalt gypsies did it for love, going from track to track.  If you remember: The Trojan Horse, the Chi-Town Hustler, the Eastern Raider, the Damn Yankee, the Super Duster, Color Me Gone, Mr. Norm, Jungle Jim Liberman, the Frantic Ford or the Flying Dutchman, then you were there watching a Funny Car Match Race somewhere “East of the Mississippi.” It’s not just a pictorial history, it’s interviews and stories from drivers, track owners and the booking agents that toured these teams all over the United States. Ever wonder who had the first funny car? Or, who had the first factory backed funny car?  All that and more… PLUS… a complete color chapter on the Coca-Cola Cavalcade of Stars devoted to those burgeoning Funny Car Stars from ‘69 to ‘76.  The front cover depicts the Funny Car Nationals at New England Dragway and is a special wrap photo that goes from the front of the book cover to the back with Dale Creasey’s Tyrant, Chuck Finders/Jr. Rollins, Bruce Larson USA 1, Barry Setzer, etc. 108 pages, hard bound,  BUY IT NOW $24.99 $6.
