More from Dad

My last post triggered a Facebook request for more vintage photos of Thunder Valley Dragways in Marion, South Dakota so here is another batch of my father David Coppess' work.

These are from May 1976 with the Hemi Under Glass and Hell's Fire wheelstanders in attendance.






These last three are from an NHRA points meet in June 1977.


Being a big fan of the all-time queen of drag racing Shirley Muldowney, I naturally pulled for the ladies like "Miss Mighty Mopar" Judy Lilly.


Pro stock drag racing legend Warren Johnson motors down the Thunder Valley strip.
