Jack Beckman’s Hot Rod History a Quarter-Mile at a Time – Episode 4

We’re at the part of hot rod history when most drag strips were running independently under 3 main sanctioning bodies: The NHRA, NASCAR and Automobile Timing Association of America (ATAA). But not all rules had been fully sanctioned yet. One of the most notable switches was standing quarter-mile runs becoming required as opposed to running starts.
