Racing just aint the same. Long after guys were playing with Hydrazine and the like, when I was a kid (turned 32 as of yesterday), I remember when Pro Stock was the wild and wooly bunch. Eckman's NO2 explosion in the oil sump, guys using specially blended fuels, even putting Nitro in the oil to help build cylinder pressure. Eckman kind of got the shaft, but I think he was just the guy that got caught, there were other guys that ran NO2, notably Glidden's son. The Dodge Boys were killers for a little while
