San Diego Raceway, Ramona, California, 1964 330's



Hi all,

Here is a link to a neat photo.

"Carspotting: Spreading The Seeds That Sprouted Funny Cars / San Diego Raceway, Ramona, California, 1964"

Context: "What we know as Funny Cars evolved from an exhibition-only class created to accommodate three particular 1964 Dodge 330 sedans. What differentiated this trio of "factory lightweights" was supercharged horsepower; the same stroker-wedge combination that engine-builder Jim Nelson had perfected in his Dragmaster Company's Top Gas Dragsters. The $250,000 program (about $2.5M today) sputtered to a premature end when the money and motors ran out—but not before fulltime pilots Jimmy Nix and Jim Johnson exposed hobby racers at each stop to the unprecedented noise, speed (documented up to 141 mph) and excitement of blown doorslammers...."
