AS I WRITE THIS, IT’S JUST A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE THANKSGIVING. I have much for which to be thankful, especially this job. Getting paid for what you love to do is truly a blessing.
But I most certainly could not cobble together a single issue of Drag Racer without those who contribute their talents to make it happen. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to thank those who make this magazine possible:
Doug Adams, Jere Alhadeff, Whit Bazemore, Bobby Bennett, Mike Bradford, Richard Brady, Jeff Burk, John DiBartolomeo, Steve Drennan, Dave Emanuel, Mike Galimi, Chris Graves,
Chuck Green, Don Hale, Lou Hart, Al Heisley, Keith Hudak, Stephen Justice, Wayne Lederer, Ron Lewis, Brian Losness,
Bob Johnson, Bob McClurg,
Joe McHugh, Eddie Maloney,
Tim Marshall, Dave Milcarek, Victor Moore, Gary Nastase, Kleet Norris, Dave Oakes, Alan Paradise, Marty Reger, Steve Reyes, Jim Riddiford, Roger Richards, Wayne Scraba, John Shanks, Jamie Shores-Fraijo,
Rod Short, Richard Shute, Tony Thacker, Ian Tocher, Susan
Wade, Dave Wallace, Jim White, Andy Willsheer and Kenny Youngblood. If I’ve missed anyone, please let me know!
And of course, the folks at Engaged Media: Eric Knagg,
Jason Mulroney, Eugene Pineda, Michelle Salcedo—and especially, The Mongoo$e. Thanks to each and every one of you.
Speaking of contributors, recently Doug Adams came in a close second in the prestigious Leslie Lovett Memorial Photo Contest, held annually in conjunction with the California Hot Rod Reunion. His photo captures Jimmy Nix’s Hemi sailing down the track in the aftermath of his T/F blow-over at the 1992 Winternationals.
Wait, I almost forgot! Thank you to all of the loyal readers/ subscribers out there.
By the time you’ve read this, Thanksgiving and Christmas will have passed. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all the best for 2018.
Leslie Lovett Memorial Photo Contest Coordinator, Dave Wallace Jr. (L) and Doug Adams.
