NHRA Wally Parks Museum Tour and Photos, Pomona CA

This exhibit changes all the time and it never fails to please and excite. It is especially good for fathers and sons.

These photos are from June of 2008 and are just a small sample of what you will see.

I grew up watching stuff like this run on the dirt, I really miss it today.

George was not the only star in the family. Sam Barris bought this 49 Merc NEW and drove it until he figured out how to chop the top. This car started it all and is truly an icon today.

George built the Ala Kart and it is absolutely one of the best ever.
