Jack Beckman’s Hot Rod History a Quarter-Mile at a Time – Episode 3

Not only were racers able to avoid the fear of getting caught, but they were able to race in better conditions – like having asphalt. The NHRA even helped people get facilities to race at before they held their first sanctioned event at Pomona Raceway. Jack Beckman explains how that was a major turning point in hot rod history.
