Too bad we do not have anymore drag races here in Quebec.
I live 45min away from the Sanair track and go there sometimes to see races
but sure wish top fuel was still racing here.
If i heard right they will not let top fuel run anymore in Canada due to
enviromental reasons go figure?????

nitro motors are dangerous. G force on acceleration another danger..Adult
supervision only. Fuel is cool.

it is a shame tha so many people here are so goulishly ill,,,, that they
WABNT to see Shirley injured in the crash. don`t you people realize that
your need to see that ,means that you are SERIOUSLY mentally
ill???difficult for me to belive that so many people are THAT SICK, that
they delight in someone`s pain and misery

Very few people realize that after that accedent, shirley revised the
bottom of the "'Foot box"" section of the cage,2 curved tubes placed in an
"X" at the bottom in front of th feet, think of a bowel shape ,with the
rounded part facing forward, to deflect anything away fron the feet that
would otherwise cause severe impact to the feet and break the legs and jamb
the pelvis, as in what happened to her. She was smart to redesign that
area, and it was a standard to follow.

The sad thing about the races was there were a lot of people there to see
the crashes. One of my best friends was killed when his car hit the guard
rail. Not a fun day

I watched her lift the front tires at about 100' from the tree several
inches off the ground. Did she lift? Hell no. The tires came back down
right after the eighth. She has Balls Of Steel. A great racer. I don't
care what gender she is. She was one of the great ones.

Hey Dude, I remember watching Shirley at Dragway Park on a Labor Day
Weekend where she shut down I believe it was Chris Karesmines ( hope I
spelled that right) to win the Final. She was just Match Racing back then
but, it was the very first time I saw, heard and FELT a Pair of Nitro
burning Top Fuelers run live and in Person and I will never ever forget
that feeling and the wicked Combination of Burnt Nitromethane Rubber and
Clutch Dust. WOW!!!

THAT is one hell of a picture.

Author MrGreggl61 ( ago)
Why dont they just show the frigging crash instead of stopping the video
and switching to still pictures. How fucking annoying

You know i wonder if the NHRA would ever come back to Canada and sanction a
national event there

Author Stephen D James ( ago)
I met Shirley at the Grand Nationals when it was at Cayuga Speedway Ontario
Canada..back in the 80's.Don Garlits was running then and John Force was
really just starting out if i remember.I remember that accident or hearing
of it..and they asked how she felt,,and she answered that the roll cage had
done it's job and if they had not she would have been killed..

crashed again, vbut this crash wasn't all that bad and she was uninjured

Maybe some home video somewhere, but I don't believe this race was

National Trail Raceway is my hometown track... I got Shirley's autograph
several times, and she even took time to chat. Maybe you caught her on a
bad day when she wasn't feeling well.

Author Ed66H ( ago)
when i was 10 i ask her to sigh my shirt....She said that she was to i went to Big Daddy and he sigh it......Ever since then I though
she was a bitch....And almost everyone in the pits though the same thing
