 BANDITO DODGES ~ BANDITO RACING ~ PROJECT MOPAR

Not bragging or bench racing, just informing you of our quest to go fast in drag racing with a limited cash flow. I'm sure you will understand this if your married and have a family.  I started going to the drag races in 1955 with a few older friends that had taken up the sport after loosing their driving privileges for street racing. Our parents where more of an issue than the local law in those days. 

Started out with a few old cars that proved to not be as fast as a 15 year old thought. By 1960 I purchased a new Olds F85 and started to have some success with the help of a local racer/tuner Bill Jenkins that lived in our neighborhood. He was my down fall, once hooked on speed, look out that's all I could think about, "Caddie bar the door".


INTRODUCTION


Once retired from my regular job of 30 years I worked as an SFI Certified Tech Official (NHRA / IHRA) inspecting race cars for safety and SFI requirements. We provided customer service in helping racers pass through the inspection process for their vehicle, making suggestions for failed safety issues as needed.

  • 1958-1960 Tech Official - Lancaster Drag-O-Way, Lancaster, PA.
  • 1960-1962 Tech Official - York Drag Strip (now York US 30), York, PA.
  • 1963 Tech Official – Atco and Vineland (once a month at each track), NJ.
  • 1965-1968 Tech Official - Mile High Raceway Drag Strip, Erie, CO.
  • 1971-1972 Tech Official - Century 21 International Speedway, Aurora, CO.
  • 1975 Tech Official – Dragway Denver (formerly Denver International Raceway), Denver, CO.

These Tech jobs where easy, not must done in the early years when compared to what we look at now. That's kind of scary how much was missed when you think about it.

  • 2001-2007 Certified SFI Tech Official - Bandimere’s Speedway, Denver, CO.

This is a work in process, don't get excited if a link doesn't work. This is just a sampling of a few drag race vehicles owned over the last 50 plus years. Check back as we convert old articles, pictures  and links to this new easier to use setup with no pop-ups.       Thank you, please come back.
