Scott Kalitta's First NHRA Event title

The Event was the 1989 NHRA Supernationals from Houston Raceway Park in Baytown TX.

The Nitro Funny Car Final came down to 2 Oldsmobiles. The Sentry Tach and Gauges Olds of Future 89 Champion Bruce Larson. And a young upstart by the name of Scott Kalitta in his dad’s Olds.

The video speaks for itself.

(I will upload this entire event one day, but given the circumstances of this past weekend, I felt that this was needed by the youtube drag racing community to help remember Scott.)

Thanks for the memories Scott, and Godspeed


  1. Great vid man! Dave McClellan was one of the best NHRA commentators ever! He and Steve Evans. God Bless You Scott! Thanks for the memories!

  2. You probably did, it took a little while for everybody to switch over.

    Plus Jeggy was having great success with one. so he ran one till the end of the 2000 Season.

    Thanks for watching.


    School and work has pretty much kept me hopping this entire summer. But this weekend I have time to put it up. So watch for it by the end of the weekend.
