McClure’s Kart At Blaney Strip

Blaney Drag Strip will feature Jack McClure tonight in his rocket-power go-kart. This fantastic piece of machinery is powered by three “T-16 Jets” will an after burner. The kart explodes from a dead stop to streak down the track and zoom through the traps at more than 150 mph. It’s an unbelievable sight.

There will also be a complete field of Super Stock, gas cars, and little stocks included in the evening’s events. Some of the entries in the Super Stocks events are Harold Denton’s Fairlane Ford, Jim Collier’s ramcharged Doge, Floyd Bessinger’s hemi-head Plymouth, and Engineering Associates’ Dodge. The gates open at 4 p.m. and eliminations begin at 8 p.m.
