|1980 U.S. Nationals (42 min)
The 1980 U.S. Nationals was considered the 'Upset Nationals' for many reasons. A young upstart named Lee
Shepherd wielded the Reher-Morrison Pro Stock Camaro to a victory in the Final Round over the heavily
favored Bob Glidden, who uncharacteristically redlighted. The big guns of the Top Fuel ranks were taken out
early with some stunning upsets. Jr. Kaiser takes the win over Connie Kalitta, Shirley Muldowney redlights,
handing the victory to relative unknown and unsponsored driver named Terry Capp, who then goes on to stun
Jeb Allen in the final round! Points leader Gary Beck has transmission trouble and loses his reverse gear,
handing the win to Jim Head. In Funny Car, an unknown named Roy Harris defeats #1 Qualifier Raymond
Beadle's 'Blue Max' in the first round! A young Billy Meyer shocks Don Prudhomme in the second round,
winning by a couple car lengths. Another upset occurs when Tom Ridings, driving the Pisano Funny Car, stuns
Billy Meyer with a victory. Ed 'The Ace' McCulloch takes the Funny Car win in the 'Super Shops' car.
1980 Popular Hot Rodding Nationals (54 min)
Phenomenal race from Martin, Michigan. All the stars are at this one! Includes some night
racing, coverage of some Sportsman classes, etc. The legendary Shirley Muldowney takes the
Top Fuel win over Don Garlits, and there are some rare interviews along the way, including Billy Meyer,
Gary Burgin, and Tom Hoover, Roland Leong, and Ron Colson. Also, a great little commercial for
Hurst Shifters by the one and only Linda Vaughn.
