"Mattydale at Northern Lights" sounds like a strain of marijuana...Y'know, like 'Skunk No. 1 x Northern Lights'...:fumette:

A rare photo of a four abreast race on July 5th, 1969 at York US-30. Actually Steve Kanuika was driving Jungle Jim's car.

I'm always a little impressed when I see the sidewall of tires like that stressing under the load of acceleration.

Those wrinkle walls are a compromise between breaking traction and ripping the tire off the rim. You should see them rolling through the pits at five miles an hour, with 9 psi pressure. You'd swear they were broken

From here:


"Wrinklewall" slicks are now specifically designed for the special requirements of drag racing, being constructed in such a way as to allow the sidewall to be twisted by the torque applied at launch, softening the initial start and thus reducing the chances of breaking traction. As speed builds, the centrifugal force generated by the tire's rotation "unwraps" the sidewall, returning the energy to the car's acceleration. Additionally, it causes the tires to expand radially, increasing their diameter and effectively creating a taller gear ratio, allowing a higher top speed with the same transmission gearing.

Oh yes, nothing like 300 mph to make the puppy grow. :eek:
