The boards have been dead for weeks. Years ago the Hog Drags were held about this time at Humboldt, Iowa. Watching Pete Hill run his blown Knuckle Fueler against Tator Gilmore's twin motored shovel was an annual rite of Summer. I will be reviving that tradition tomorrow at Harrisburg, Illinois. My friend Wayne Skinner will put on his 2nd Vintage Motorcycle drag race. http://www.vintagedragbikeracing.com/ Lee Wickstom will take Pete's spot with his Knuckle dragger. See an image of his motor at IMT............ note to S&S web guy, Please remove 700 pixel limit ! I hope I'll see some of you there. John
I am not sure of the year, but it was sometime in the mid 80's I was at the Humboldt drags and saw Elmer Trett blow the front motor of his twin shovel top fueler from about 30 feet away. I don't know how we didn't get hit by the shrapnel.
