This is a classic. Riverside, California, in the late 1960’s. The old drag strip layout on the Riverside road course backstretch. Yes, it is the late, great, “Wild Willie” Borsch. Yes, that is the start speed photocell off to the left of the car. Yes, that is the edge of the track!! Yes, he is going 200 miles an hour at the quarter mile finish line. Yes, this is a crash that did not happen!! You will notice that the driver famous for driving with one hand, was using both hands on this pass!!
