Funny Car Match Racing is a unique look at the match racing funny cars that roamed the Eastern, Midwestern and Southern tracks during the late 60's and 70's.  These "self sponsored" asphalt gypsies did it for love, going from track to track - 3 and maybe 4 times a week.  It's over 150 pictures but intriguing stories from track promoters that booked 'em and the booking agents that signed them as well as memories from various drivers and team members.  There's a special chapter on the Coca-Cola Cavalcade of Stars (see pic below) that tells of who and how the series from '69 -'76 began and grew.

If you remember the Boston Shaker, the Eastern Raider, Jungle Jim, the Damn Yankee, Color Me Gone, the Motown Shaker, Mr. Norm, and the Frantic Ford then you were there watching a Funny Car Match Race somewhere East of the Mississippi.  Rave Reviews from DragRacingOnLine,, and Drag Racer Magazine
