Jim’s Comments

We see the Doug Hartelt and Dawson Hadley's 1952 Bonneville entry tripping the timing lights on one of their runs. The team entered the car in two classes, B and C. In class B they were after the Oierson Brothers '51 record of 146.365 mpnand managed to run a lap at 154.30 mph for a first in class. In C they were running against Dawson's '51 record of 160.132 mph and again managed to qualify and take first inclass with a 162.82 mph lap. In both cases the couldn't do the two required laps over the record so had to go home empty handed. ©AHRF/Doug Hartelt Collection.
Hot Rod Photo of the Day

Every day, we post a new hot rod, custom or drag racer photo from the collections currently on Jim Miller’s desk. These are posted at approximately 4 AM Eastern, and you are likely looking at a photo that has rarely been seen outside of family and friends. Jim’s comments may reflect the photo owner’s knowledge or may result from the extensive research that Jim conducts. Each photo then goes into our on-site Photo Gallery, where you can review the most recent 20 photos.
