This thrilling poster was created by the artist Earl Newman for the 11th Annual National Hot Rod Association National Championship Drag Races held in September 1964 at Raceway Park in Indianapolis. Newman’s image aptly captures the drama of a Top Fuel Dragster, the quickest accelerating cars in the world, exploding from the start to speeds that will exceed 300 miles per hour and cover 1,000 feet in less than four seconds.
This poster is a vintage original from the 1964 National Championships with moderate handling wear and evidence of use including pinholes on the corners and two additional pinholes along the bottom edge. There are a couple spots on the back of the poster with small areas of contact surface loss of paper where it looks like tape was removed but this does not show or affect the artwork on the front side of the poster. The poster also has a few small tape stains on the back of the poster also now showing on the front side. This dramatic poster displays nicely and is in good condition overall.
