Hot Rod Deluxe - - Flag Man -

Sept. 1955 is­sue called the Den­ver stop of the 1955 NHRA Drag Sa­fari “one of the best” of that year’s tour. The hard work of the Den­ver Tim­ing As­so­ci­a­tion and the Strip­pers car club, with as­sis­tance from the Air Force Po­lice, en­abled some 905 runs on the Lowry Air Force Base course on the first day alone. Maybe all that tire smoke and noise got the bet­ter of this flag man, who just can’t watch Jack Moss take off in the Ram­blin Ram, Moss’s Dodge-hemi-pow­ered drag­ster. When the smoke cleared, Moss emerged as Top Elim­i­na­tor of the meet, “get­ting there first” de­spite the fact that his drag­ster ri­val, the Kenz & Les­lie flat­head-pow­ered rail, set top speed of the meet at 122.28 mph.
