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.
