|Drag Racing #6 : 1987 & 1990 - Showcase Of Champions
|1-DVD : 118 minutes Quality : Excellent
|In keeping with our promise to give you the most footage, coupled with the highest quality, we packed 2
great events onto one disc! The NHRA "Showcase Of Champions" was an event that brought together
the best of the best, top NHRA drivers, based on drivers qualifying throughout the year, for a huge (at
that time) cash payout. In 1987, the 3 shootout categories were called the "Cragar Weld Wheel Top Fuel
Classic", the "Big Bud Shootout", and the "Mr. Gasket Pro Stock Challenge". The Pro Stock and Funny Car
races were held at Indianapolis Raceway Park (home of the U.S. Nationals), while the Top Fuel dragsters
ran in Pomona, CA. In 1990, the Pro Stock category was eliminated, the Top Fuel shootout was now called
the "Budweiser Top Fuel Classic", the Funny Car race remained the "Big Bud Shootout".
Vintage drag racing fans will recall that these years were dominated by Oldsmobile, NHRA's main
sponsor, and all three pro categories saw heavy use of the Oldsmobile DRCE engine. From giant
Oldsmobile banners to Oldsmobile parachutes (photo below), it's hard to believe that within 10 years,
General Motors would announce the demise of Oldsmobile, a once great and powerful division of GM.

The best drivers of 1987 are in these 3 shootouts, including the legendary Joe Amato, upstart Darrell Gwynn,
