Midwest Nostalgia

Dan really shook the cobwebs in the old cranium with his drag racing post. Great job Dan.

It got me to googling for the old US30 drag racing commercials that were unavoidable to radio listeners near Chicago in the late 60's. Me and my friends went to US30 Drag Raceway often on summer nights back then.

Found a few youtuber's featuring Jan Gabriel, the voice of racing on radio in the old days (I refuse to use the cliche "back in the day"). I was unable to embed the video from youtube but here are a few links.
