Brian just found Photos of this Group running Dover in ’74….about the time I departed and don’t recall this apperance. Phot0s on the way ! Bet Drake knows the cars-girls and boot sizes.
Brian Just back from Menglers with all the photos ! In the Mail! Bunny Burkette (Cotton Pony Mustang)And Jean Brown ,plus 4 others .
How the Hell did I not go to that??? 😯 Pro Stock AND hotties! I got my first trophy at Dover that summer. Anybody know the date that happened?
Did some Snooping…Found This:
“Bunny poses beside her second bright red Mustang, in the late ’60s. Part of Bunny’s popularity stemmed from her participation in Tom “Smoker” Smith’s Miss Universe of Drag Racing tour. Bunny remembered the tour with affection, calling it “a traveling circus.” It was a hit with the fans, who liked the quality of the racing almost as much as the hot pants contests that the Miss Universe drivers participated in. “We would strut our stuff,” Bunny said, and the crowds “would yell and clap and carry on….” Sounds exploitative, and it probably was. But drag racing is an expensive sport, and playing by Smith’s rules was one way that Bunny and the other women could stay in the game.”
Carol Henson Also in the Mix…Later went on to run BB/FC ‘Warlock”. Gene Brown was ‘Mousie” Brown’s wife.Not much more info can be found .
