Can anyone find any photos of Bernie White's Endeavor drag bike. I can find program entries from 1972 but no references in race reports although there is a story told to me last week with Bernie against John Hobbs! You'll have to wait for the weekend's commentary. :D

Just received word from Norm Wheeldon that the 'Too Much' twin engined slingshot dragster will be present at this weekend's Nostalgia Nationals. Norm has had the car fired up at the weekend and it sounds real good; crisp and loud were the words used. There are a few more new parts and tyres invested for the weekend so watch out because 'Too Much' is on its way rockin and rollin'. Be therrrrrreeeee.
