NHRA Winston Finals 1990

Recommended Posts

The original pictures are taken by my dad, but I wanted to share them here as well, because I thought they are really cool. So I took pictures of the paper pictures to get them in digital form. So in 1990 my dad was in the USA with a couple of his friends. They visited other places as well, like SEMA Show and Pomona Swap, but this race was really interesting especially because a Finnish Pro Stock Bike racer Veli "Jappe" Malin was racing with his Pro Stock Bike there.

A couple of pictures from the pits first...

Stock Eliminator Pontiac.

Then the action pics:

Stock Eliminator first (Unfortunately only one picture though). I'm not completely sure about the class of the Mustang, but from what I can see I'd say it's a B/SA car, the Chevelle is G/SA.

Then Super Stock:

GT/FA Chevy Camaro.

Here is SS/HA Ford Mustang and a Chevy Camaro Super Stock. That Camaro was bought to Finland later and it has been racing actively since then. Last year I was driving a couple of qualifying runs against it too. Here is a picture of that Camaro in 2014: http://tapahtumakuvia.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Tapahtumat+2014/Bl%C3%A5kl%C3%A4der+Finals,+Motopark+16.-17.8.2014/Sunday/DSCN7803.JPG

Thanks for looking fellas & Sorry that I forgot to post more pics. That LAPD Camaro would be a nice one to have on my stash as well. I have the box actually, but it includes the original issue of Jukebox Ford instead of that Camaro... Maybe some day.

Next Pro Stock Bike. These two pics show a Finnish driver Jappe Malin driving his Pro Stock Bike. Unfortunately he had some issues with the bike and he got eliminated on the first elimination round.
