Here is the incredible Rocket Go Kart of Captain Jack McClure. Certainly one of the wildest drag racing vehicles of all time. This pint sized beast toured the United States for three years in the early 1970’s and ran as quick as a 5.95 at 250 miles per hour on its last ever run with McClure at the wheel at Orange County International Raceway in Irvine, California, before he retired it at the end of the 1973 drag racing season. He never did crash it, of course you would only crash it once!! For professional motorsports photography contact Steve Reyes at
