 Surfers & Bobby

 2/21/65 Fontana. Match race with The Surfers against Bob Tatroe in Walt Arfons's STP Speical. Surfers won the $250. in 3 straight with 7.73, 7.71, and 7.66ETs 199 and 200 MPH. The jet turned 210 MPH 7.41 ET.

 "We had a few of these match races against jet cars, the jets left slowly but chased the dragster down rapidly with the afterburner lit, if the dragster driver didn't get the throttle closed before the jet came by it would damage the engine with all of the trash and dirt the jet would throw at him".
