Do you remember the first time you went to the drags?

How about the first time you smelled the nitro?

for me the first time i went to the drags was with my uncle who had just returned from vietnam and wanted to take us to see
32 funnycars at Portland international raceway. 1975 or 76?
When they started all the cars at the same time i was hooked and have been ever since?
Some of the cars that i remember being there was "the snake" "the mongoose" "240 gordie bonin" "gentleman hank johnson" "the action man kenny goodell" "chargin charlie" "john BRUTE force"
"the war eagle dale pulde" " the in and out burger car" "the ACE"
just name a few!
