Drag Racer - - Contents -

THIS past sum­mer, the Drag Racer magazine staff had the plea­sure of cross­ing paths with Jeff and Christie Bil­leter. Jeff and his son Jake are reg­u­lar com­peti­tors at Illi­nois’ By­ron Drag Drag­way (you old­sters knew it as Rock­ford). Jeff drives a ’71 Vega pow­ered by a 355-ci Chevy run­ning 10.60s at 126 mph. Son Jake cam­paigns a 470-inch BB ’66 Chev­elle, which reg­u­larly cards 9.10s at 143 mph. Jake’s son Briggs is the team mas­cot.
