    I have a little bit here about Bruces’ un-blown hemi dragster. Stuff that he told me himself about it.

    Bruce and his crew took it to the Nationals at Indy in it’s day, 1964 or 1965 I guess and ran in the final round for his class. He got beat because his engine leaned out at the top end. He would have won if he just had a little more fuel in the intake…!

    Don’cha hate when that happens…?! 🙄
