They were right down the road from Jack Douglass Chevrolet and in the 1960-70s Hinsdale Illinois was a very affluent Suburb (as it still is today).

One of the prevalent US30 Dragstrip associations for race cars like this was the UDRA. Maybe they can find some old pictures looking up IHRA and UDRA.

There is a UDRA page on facebook.
I think US 30 was sanctioned by AHRA.

Is there a Shelby forum that is covering this car? I'd like to see the updates.

I’ve ran across so many “ex-drag cars” that were never fully completed without ever seeing any track time at all. I wonder if there’s any rubber thrown up in the rear fenderwells because that’s usually the tell-tale.

... Yeah but sometimes we'd do a good job of cleaning the rubber if we felt like it.
