Any help you can provide will be appreciated. Thanks. :wave:

Only two cars I have and probably the easy ones to research:

Row 2 first
Jr. Thompson
http://www.jrthompson.net/jrtcareer.html#BIOGRAPHY

Row 2 middle:
Hill Brothers
http://www.jrthompson.net/hillbroswillys.html

Jr. Thompson has a pretty nice link of other racers including the Hills Brothers I gave you above
http://www.jrthompson.net/gasserlegends.html

Good luck

edit: Ken Kull is the guy who restored the Hills gasser not the original racer if that matters. Pete Hill was the driver if I remember right

Atencio, thanks for the links.
Some great reading.
I love this stuff.
All part of drag racing history.
And thanks to Jr. Thompson's daughter, Rhonda for putting it together.

Cheers. Cobra
