    One minor correction is that it was a 429 Cobra jet not a 427. Since i have met Barry i have been a real Boarder Bandits fan.Heres some of my collection.

    Another correction, Beeline Drag way actually sits on the Pima Indian Reservation off Beeline Highway (next to Snobsdale) I used to race MX at Beeline Moto-X park in the 70s. My brother would race my folks 7 ltr Galaxie at the midnight drags after my races were over. The last time I was by there the remnants of the track could still be seen. It was also NHRA sactioned one of the few dual sanctioned tracks BITD
