Detroit Dragway Photos - Legends of the 60s

Scott Kalitta holding one of his father Connie Kalitta's trophies & Connie, the other, awarded him in 1971 (middle) (right of him) Pancho Rendon who raced a front eng. dragster & was champion around 1986 & right of him is Larry Hensley who was part of the crew & the mechanic & his name is on the car above where he's standing. The Miss Grand Nationals girls are unknown to me & also the fellow to the left. This is a very rare photo as are many in these collections but I heard that Pancho didn't like to get his picture taken & to get one of him smiling at that, is a true find. Photo by Joe Stevens.
