Back to the old front engined dragster days. This shot is off of the Lion’s cross over bridge. Here is Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen ready to fire his Top Fueler for a quarter mile blast at Lion’s Drag Strip in Long Beach, California, back in the 1960’s. All of the big name nitro hitters raced at Lion’s by the Los Angeles Harbor at one time or another, back in the day. For professional motorsports photography contact Steve Reyes at
