Recently Discovered 1960’s Drag Racing Film From

Wichita, KS - Manhattan, KS and Tulsa, OK!

In 2017 I found my families old 8mm films - reels and reels of it. After discovering just how expensive it is to have that

old film converted to DVD (they charge by the foot!), the project was shelved. Then my dad mentioned the film and told

me he had taken his moms 8mm camera to the drag strip in the mid and late 1960’s. He grew up in Wichita, KS and even

drag raced his Corvette in the late 1960’s. After discovering this I was new really excited to see what he had captured!

After spending many hundreds of dollars and waiting in excitement the film was finally converted to DVD in late 2017.

After sitting down and watching it with my dad I was enthralled by the footage he took! Here is some of what he

captured;

Duane Creekmore filmed this rare footage and his buddies while he was racing his 1965 Corvette down the track. While

Duane was a not (and still isn’t) a professional cameraman he did capture some fantastic footage of drag racing. Film of

late 1960’s drag racing in Wichita & Manhattan, KS is no doubt rare. Combine that with the incredible film of the 66’ and

68’s NHRA Worlds Points Finals that features a number of legends - the film is not only entertaining but historic.

Don Creekmore (Duane’s Son) produced the video you are about to purchase. He along with his wife own Nation’s Attic

Inc. While Don is not a video production specialist, he was able to edit out any bad film segments, include information

on where the film is shot and when plus including some cool background music during the action.

Both my dad and I are not selling these disks to make a lot of money. We simple feel the film is really cool and taken

during a period of time and location rarely seen today. If you were around Wichita, Manhattan or Tulsa in the late 1960’s

and visited the drag strip, you may just seen some old friends, cool cars or even yourself!
