    Div. 4 Comp

    I pulled a few of these off of my site. The first two are from the mid-90's, when my dad raced in stock eliminator and I'd travel with him to various Div. 4 tracks. Comp was always my favorite to watch.

    Maryann Austin and Michael Johnson:

    Jeff Naiser at Hallsville (note Craig Bourgeois in the staging lanes in the background):

    Buddy Nickens' L/A Daytona, a car that Bill Gibbs owned later (this may have been 2000 or so):

    Gibbs owned the car and let Bud Man drive it. This happened in Memphis at the divisional race (Div.4). It may have been in either 2001 or 2002. I can't really remember the year.

    We bought this car from Arnie M., who also bought it from John Lingenfelter.

    This one got a tad too high when testing at the Houston SuperBowl weekend session. LOL That's Shane and Big Dave watching in the background.

    Neat Stuff Guys -- not a Comp racer, but enjoy looking at all the different types. Every once in awhile someone will start up a photo thread on yellowbullet.com of all the "Street-Legal" drag cars and it brings up the same responses as this thread has.

    Of course, the headsup street legal stuff came about in the late eighties -- but we've still got a whole bunch of photos. Its a shame that alot of the older drag racing photos can't be viewed online, but this thread maybe has started something.

    Does NHRA have all of their photos online somewhere or are they all under lock and key??

    Keep up the great work!!!

    Here's another one, had a great shot of it standing almost straight up at Irwindale, but can't seem to find it yet.
