Slingshot Dragster, the Deadliest Drag Racing Car of the 1960s, Commemorated by New T-Shirt from Quarter Mile Addiction

Meet the deadliest beast that took birth on the drag strips of the 1960s. Also known as Diggers, Slingshots or Rail, the Dragster cars have now been commemorated by a brand new T-shirt by Quarter Mile Addiction carrying the slogan, “Mid-Summer Fuel Meet, All Go No Show”. Ruling the drag strips during their lifetime, the front engine Dragsters sported ferocious hemi engine power with supercharging and injection. The earlier versions had a front engine, and when racing smoked the tires and lifted the front up, making for a spectacular sight. The Slingshot Dragsters ran the Top Fuel class, but over time converted to a rear engine design. The Slingshots in particular experienced fatal crashes, with exploding clutches or engines with serious injuries to the drivers. The reason being the driver literally straddled the transmission and virtually sat a top the rear end differential. With the transmission between the drivers legs, the engine sat barely three feet in front of them, this was a recipe for disaster. The first Slingshot appeared in 1954 and was made by Mickey Thompson. Ed Donovan too launched a 417 Donovan Hemi, which was a Chyrsler aluminum copy. The first driver to exceed 260mph and 280mph in professional drag racing, Joe Amato, is more popular as a Dragster driver. He won the NHRA Top Fuel championship five times, a record in itself. Slingshots can be seen in action today in nostalgia drag racing, albeit with limits on fuel mix, horsepower and speed.
