Jack Beckman’s Hot Rod History a Quarter-Mile at a Time – Episode 2

In this episode, Jack Beckman gives insight into where drag racing began in Southern California before it picked up speed and quickly spread across the nation. With the creation of official drag strips, a need for one centralized sanctioning body became apparent. Because not only did different tracks run races differently, but racers needed guidelines to follow. The NHRA stepped in and provided a standardization of rules, vehicles and ways to insure events.
