This was one BAD ride in it's day! That Ronnie drove for Bruce Walker. That car ran ten trillion 5.55 ET's and one or two Farmington Pro Drag Series races back in its day.
Ronnie "the Shoe" Hood taking time for the folks. That is why he's always been a fan favorite in what ever Pro Mod ride he has been in. We need him back in 2011!
Before there was Pro Modified or even a all door car TOP Sportsman class, it was quick qualified field of door cars and Dragsters that made up in the early '80's IHRA's Top Sportsman. Charlotte, NC's Charles Carpenter seen here was in the Farm's IHRA Pro Am finals against the late great World Champion Don Young. Charles campaigned his familiar '55 Chevy on the IHRA trail and still had time to do a little bracket racing back in the day.
THANKS to VAN the MAN for the great photography's of legendary racers Ronnie Hood and Charles Carpenter.
