1967 Billy Lynch's Top Fuel Dragster
FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
While attending one of the most prestigious Classic Car Shows on Long Island and possibly the east coast in Morgan Park, Glen Cove Long Island New York, I came across every type of car under the stars from Classics, roadsters, hot rods and racing cars and dragsters. This particular find had three great deals to it, not only did I find and photograph two of Billy Lynch's Top Fuel Drag Racing Cars I got to meet Billy Lynch and he walked me around this beautiful 1967 Top Fuel Dragster that assured him a place in the Drag Racing Hall of Fame. He informed me that this was his favorite car to race of all time. So while attending a classic car show I get to take photos of some of the greatest cars ever out there and in this case get to meet a racing hall of fame legend in Billy Lynch and finally have him show me the car, unfortunately I did not get a photo of Billy Lynch with the car. Billy Lynch was a major player in both Top Gas and Top Fuel racing on the east coast throughout the 60�s. In 1967 Billy lynch went on the pro circuit full-time, and racked up the following wins: winner of the 1967 NASCAR Spring Nationals at St Mary�s Drag way, Maryland winner of 1967 A.H.R.A. Nationals, at New York National Speedway, runner-up at the 1967 NASCAR Nationals, at Atco, New Jersey, winner of the 1967 NHRA Northeast Division 1 Points Championship and A.H.R.A. ET record holder all in Top Gas.
On off weekends Billy would pull the gas engine out of his Race Car Specialties dragster and install Mike Sforza�s fuel motor and go out and compete in top fuel races. Like so many racers before and after, he left the sport in 1970 to pursue family and business ventures. After a 20 year hiatus from competition, Billy again returned to the sport he loved, Top Fuel Racing. Billy recruited Jack Ostrander to drive in 1990 until a top end crash in Sonoma, California. In 1991 Billy returned with another Top Fuel Dragster with Funny Car Champion Al Segrini at the wheel, and Big Jim Dunn as the tuner. Billy had such notables as Ken Veney and Leonard Hughes tune for him until retiring from Competition in 1995.
In October 2007 Lynch was inducted into the East Coast drag times Hall Of Fame.
