President's Corner:  
Jim Miller is working on a long story concerning drag racing’s early days, which will appear in the next issue of the SLSRH.


     The readers should notice the structure of the newsletter. It begins with the masthead, then the President’s column, Editorial and finally letters, news and research. This is a standard approach in magazines, newsletters, newspapers and internet e-zines. What I want to talk about today is the editorial. Editorials are like newspaper obituaries, op-ed pages or crossword puzzles. Some readers are interested in them and others simply by-pass what the editor has to say. Frankly, when I read the local newspaper I go right to the editorials first and I can quickly judge whether the publication will be a first class one or not. Part of that is bias, but a great deal of my judgment is based on experience. Take for example the Los Angeles Times, the Orange County Register and the old, now defunct, Los Angeles Mirror. The Mirror couldn’t compete against the Times and was bought out and became the Times/Mirror. Much of their staff became the backbone of the Times and brought a quality to the Times that had been previously lacking. Today the Times is a mediocre newspaper and a quick glance at the editorials will tell you why. 
   Editors and editorials set the mood for the publication. It isn’t bad to be like the
Times or the Register, each representing a different viewpoint. The publication mirrors the views and policies of the editor. When I step down the new editor of this publication will change the way the newsletter looks, feels and reports on based on his or her biases and experience. That was the way it was for my father in the late 1930’s when he and a few others created the Road Runners News and made extra copies for anyone else in the SCTA who wanted them. The newsletter expanded to mention news of other individuals in other clubs and eventually Wally Parks and Eldon Snapp decided, with approval of the board, to rename the little publication the SCTA Racing News. Dad often told my brother David and I how he and Eldon would put together the newsletter, typing with those old carbon papers and then they would drive down to Carlsbad to meet Bozzie Willis from the San Diego Roadster Club. Bozzie was their close friend and companion in all the shenanigans that they were into. Willis knew a printer who gave him a good deal on printing. When the newsletters were done, Bozzie would bring the issues to the board meetings in Los Angeles and give them out to the board and club representatives to distribute to their members.
   Like all editors, my father would use the newsletter as a forum to advance the goals of the SCTA, which he believed in all of his life. He was very subtle about it, not ham-fisted or stubborn like I am with the editorials that I write. He took that same style of consensus with him when he went on to become the editor of
Hot Rod magazine.  Even in his emails and letters to people he was always editorializing. He would send my stories, articles and emails back to me with “corrections.” I find that I do that today to people. Just about every email that I receive that goes into this newsletter has been slightly edited. The reason that I do that to you is the same reason that my father did that to me; he didn’t want us to be embarrassed by our mistakes and he wanted hot rodding to be seen in a “professional” way. He knew that we were all a bunch of grease monkeys, but he wanted the public to see us as equals, not as young trouble-makers. I don’t change your meanings, but if you misspell words or your grammar needs a spruce-up then I make those corrections. In some cases, as with Tex Smith, a real editorial pro and owner of Tex Smith Libraries, I leave his writings alone, because Tex wouldn’t be Tex if I made those corrections. 
   What does an editor do? First, he sees that the publication contributors get their work in on time and the newsletter goes out in a regular fashion. Two, he directs the news, research and topics towards the goals of the organization and sometimes his own biases. He is the captain of the ship and that vessel is the newsletter. The editorial is his “battle instructions to the crew” before engaging the enemy. Or the pep talk the coach gives to his team before the kick-off. My father fervently believed the editorial to be one of the most important part of the publication, especially as he was always behind some cause. He passionately protected hot rodding from the politicians who wanted to legislate the sport out of existence. He fought tooth and nail to combat illegal street racing, since deaths on the highway meant more pressure to ban street rodding and motorsports racing. Besides fighting against negative stereotypes, he also fought for those things that would benefits hot rodding, such as organizations like SEMA, ICCA, NHRA, ACCUS, etc. He was also dedicated to protecting the rights of oval track racing as well as drag and land speed racers. So when you see the editorial, don’t assume that it is simply a bombastic exercise. There are good reasons to see what the editor is trying to do and say. From the editorial comes the map to the newsletter itself.
   On another subject, Jim Miller recently had his email system hacked and the scam artists cracked his password and took all of his old emails containing photographs and email addresses. He eventually got his computer’s email system restored to him and he has kept his old email address, but changed his password to a much longer and more complex one so as to thwart any new attempts to hack his computer. But a lot of damage has been done. Hundreds, if not thousands of people have received the hackers demands for money. The letter sent out said that Jim was mugged in London and lost all his money, airline ticket, passport and needs money to get home. Of course this is not true and Jim has spent a great deal of time calling people and letting them know that it was all a scam by unknown hackers and not to send any money to the hackers. This has happened to some of my friends and relatives. You can protect yourselves by BCC’ing (Blind Carbon Copying) your email addresses and never “Forward” someone else’s emails without removing the email addresses from public view. Another thing that you can do is make your password more difficult. Hackers have computer machines that can run thousands of password combinations a second and can break short and simple passwords. CAT or DOG takes hackers but seconds to break and then they are into your computer and can take whatever they want and use your computer for their criminal plans. 
   That could make YOU liable for the damages as well as ruining your reputation. If you use a seven character (numbers, letters and marks like a pound sign) password the thieves can break your code in hours. An eight character password can be broken in days. A nine character password can be broken in weeks and a ten character password can be broken in two months or less. To be on the safe side use at least a twelve character password with some of the letters capitalized, a few numbers and some signs. For example, here is a rather difficult password to break; #Gear157Grinder* and which is still easy to remember. You can also do it in reverse, such as #Grinder157Gear*. There are sixteen characters, eleven lower case letters, two marks, three numbers, and two capitalized letters. The numbers can represent your car’s SCTA number. The chance that someone can hack this password is remote, unless your email address is the same as your password. Another thing that you can do is to take all the email addresses and important email messages that you want to save and put them in a Word Folder. If you think your computer has been compromised, call your server immediately. If you think a friend of yours has been hacked, then don’t email him, call him on the telephone instead. There are other methods to protect your computer and if you send your suggestions to me I will put them in the newsletter for others to read.


A memorial and celebration of life for Burke LeSage has been scheduled.  If you have a web site, know of a web site, know friends and or associates of his and you have a way of contacting them, please assist me and the family.  The Celebration of Life will be on Friday, January 20, 2012 at 1:00 PM at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, 1101 West McKinley Avenue, Bldg 3A Pomona, California 91768.  If you have photos, or anything you'd like to share please bring anything and everything.  Larry and I are assisting the family and organizing the program.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me.  Anne Lindsley, [email protected], or call 909-240-0868.
     Anne: Thank you for the invitation and I will contact those on my list.


Steve Stapp 71, former California sprint car driver, and son of legend Babe Stapp, was critically hurt yesterday in Brownsburg when stopped in traffic on a railway crossing and his motorhome was struck by a train. He was thrown out of the cab and landed on the ground with severe injuries including two broken legs. Stapp owned the sprint car that took Pancho Carter to many USAC wins in the 70s. The hospital was waiting for his condition to become stable so they could perform surgery on his legs. At his age it could go either way. Stapp was driving sprint cars when he was 22 owned by his father but he kept gaining weight until they no longer fit him so he turned car owner. Daughter Susanna has updates on Facebook.   Sent in by Len Ashburn, Jerry Grobe and Bob Falcon


Amateur 8mm footage shot at an SCTA meet at Harper Lake, definitely prewar but chock full of iconic hot rods. You are going to love this! See http://youtu.be/z5ENn_hxv64. Chuck Edwall
   Gary and Dave: Jack Underwood shared your link with me on Tommy's prewar dry lakes video.  Do you have any more videos of early lakes video?  
   Unfortunately, no. That footage was on an 8mm reel that included a bunch of family stuff, we pulled off the lakes material and used ALL of it.  Can you tell me about the Society of Land Speed Racing Historians?  Dave Welles
Dave: The Society of Land Speed Racing Historians was a group of interested people who came together about four years ago to try and save as much history of land speed racing, hot rodding and the first ten years of early drag racing.  Members use our newsletter to give progress reports, biographies, photos and any other knowledge that they may have.  All the newsletter issues are archived at www.landspeedracing.com.  The Society has no rules, dues or a regulated structure as most of us are either amateur or professional historians.  There are also other fine websites that research the history of LSR including; H.A.M.B., www.landracing.com, www.AHRF.com, Bonneville News, SCTA Racing News, and many others that can be googled on the internet.  Put www.landspeedracing.com on your list of favorites or sign in and the website owner will send you a notice when a new issue is ready to read. 


Editor: Here are three websites sent in by Garry Baker from Australia that may interest the readers.
Research projects are my main thread.  I will look around, and also ask Brian Darby to see if he can be of help.   Brian does a lot of web sites - maybe a dozen or so. See

The December issue of ACAG Update is now available by following this link. See www.drceurope.co.uk/acag/dec2011.  Thanks to Jayne McWatt (a colleague from way back when we both had proper jobs with Sewells International) the layout is now much improved, and once again it is our friends at Drag Racing Confidential who have given us this turn-page version. I now feel we are somewhere near where I want to be with this publication. This issue includes the latest news on the restoration project and page 6 gives you a link to Bob Roberts if you would like to help with the work. Page 9 covers the exciting new arrangements we have recently announced with the Institute of the Motor Industry’s apprenticeship programme. If you would like to show off your car at any of the national events we will be attending then contact me on [email protected]. The final article is the first part of a series plotting the racing history of the 1961 Allard Chrysler we are restoring for the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu. Brian Taylor

Rod Hadfield is the secretary of the DLRA and their website is at     http://www.dlra.org.au/. Rod’s website is at http://www.google.com.au/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&=&q=%22rod+hadfield%22&oq=%22rod+hadfield%22&aq=f&aqi=g1g-s1g4&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=4843335l4859494l0l4859932l30l30l3l8l0l1l317l4388l2.3.10.4l19l0.  Garry Baker


I’ve signed up to receive the newsletter. Please feel free to add a link to the Harper Lake video; it’s on our home page at: http://www.seabrighthotrods.com/.  Here is the back story on the film and my uncle: Uncle Tommy Lorbeer wasn't really kin. He was my dad's best friend. Tommy raced with my dad at the lakes in the late 30's, flew a P-38 in WWII, drove a Porsche in the early 50's, and had the first VW Van in Riverside. He was always ahead of the curve. As kids, we'd never heard a stereo system before. Tommy had one and, without warning, flew a fighter jet from the left speaker to the right — at full speed and full volume. Man, we all hit the floor. In 1940 he bought a new-fangled toy, an 8mm movie camera, and took it out to Harper Dry Lake. We think my dad is the guy early in the footage in the white coveralls, leather helmet, with his thumbs in his ears, wiggling his fingers. Both my dad and Tommy are gone, but his son found and sent me this reel of film they shot that day on the lake. All he knew was that there was some “hot rod stuff” in it. I had it digitized and you can imagine our surprise when we discovered what we had! My son Connor gets all the credit for editing it, adding the music, and making it fun to watch. Dave Welles
   Dave: Thank you for the link. We never know where these treasures will turn up, but if we keep looking and asking we do find them.  Our goals are to preserve history and sometimes the history includes other things than land speed racing and hot rodding.  We also try and preserve the history of the era as well.  Primarily we do it for our family, but then make it available, as you have, to a more general audience.  Here are our four primary goals; 1) write your biography, 2) caption all your photographs, 3) write down your stories, and 4) inventory all your possessions.  History attaches itself to objects.  It is through objects like photographs, parts, and memorabilia that we keep our stories alive through bench racing.  But we need to go past bench racing to the written word and save stories, biographies and captioned photographs for future generations.  We don't know the value of what we save; we do it on faith alone.  But if we look at what past generations have given to us and how much it means to our generation, then we know that what we save today will be extremely valued by future generations.  This is why we exist and why we formed the Society of Land Speed Racing Historians group.  As individuals we save what we can and add it to what others save and the future will then inherit what we have done.  Videos are extremely rare and we are very grateful that you have saved this treasure.  Be sure to read the back issues of the newsletter.  Work on a family biography if you can and I will help you by editing and publishing it.  Your father's story (and Tommy Lorbeer's) should be told. 


Motorcycle racer and team owner Valerie Thompson has been named the co-recipient of the 2011 American Woman Riders Community Hero Award by the American Woman Riders Association. Thompson's racing accomplishments and community support of the HopeKids children's charity were key criteria for award selection.  The American Woman Riders Community Hero Award was initiated in 2010 to provide recognition of women motorcycle riders who donate time to charities and give selflessly to their community without expecting something in return. "Valerie's many years of supporting the HopeKids organization was a key consideration in selecting her for this year's recognition. She has taken children to drag races, attended movie days, and participated in many fundraising events for the organization. Her motorcycle racing accomplishments in drag racing and land speed record attempts make her an excellent role model for thousands of women riders across the country. Valerie's positive, caring attitude display what a true American Woman Rider strives to be," according to Tina Reeves, President of the American Woman Riders Association. 
   "This award is a real honor. My parents taught me the importance of ‘giving back’ to the community and helping those less fortunate. I love working with kids, which has been extremely rewarding for me personally. HopeKids does excellent work and it has been a wonderful experience to help support their efforts," said Thompson. Tammy Wiley from Harker Heights Texas was the co-recipient of this year’s community hero award, recognizing her work with the "We Fight Like A Girl" ovarian cancer foundation. Thompson currently holds two land speed records at the famed Bonneville Salt Flats. This year Thompson ran a "personal best" top speed of 201.01 mph at the 8th Annual BUB Speed Trials, outperforming all other BMW's at the event. She has risen from a competitor in the All Harley Drag Racing Association series, to being a racing team owner/licensed competitor in the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Pro Stock Motorcycle Series. Thompson also serves as a motorcycle presenter for the world’s largest auto auction company, Barrett-Jackson.
   Thompson's current goals include setting additional land speed records and becoming a member of the “200 MPH Club.” Current sponsors include: CTEK battery chargers, TROON Enterprises, Swisstrax, Stand Up Photos, Alter/Bivins Racing, and Hawthorne CAT of San Diego. Founded in 2010, the American Woman Riders Association began as a New Mexico online magazine for women who love to drive and ride motorcycles. The online magazine has grown quickly and now has international members in Italy, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, and Australia. American Woman Riders celebrates all the grandmothers, mothers, and daughters who love riding the open road.  Additional Information Sources Web Site: www.americanwomanriders.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/ValerieFanPage Facebook: http://facebook.com/valerie.thompsonracing YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/ValerieThompson20 LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/valerie-thompson/11/52a/90a Web Site: http://www.ValerieThompsonRacing.com Web Site: http://HopeKids.org Web Site: http://smartercharger.com Web Site: http://hawthornecat.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/American-Woman-Riders/112117735473351

The 1932 Ford (also known as the Deuce) is a significant part of automotive culture because it was the first V-8 powered vehicle available at a price affordable to the common man. Quite often '32 Fords were stripped of their heavy fenders, running boards, and sometimes even headlights and windshields (on open cars) simply for the pursuit of speed. As the number of speed equipment manufacturers grew, an entire aftermarket industry was born, eventually finding a voice on the pages of Robert E. Petersen's Hot Rod Magazine.                  
     The Petersen Automotive Museum will commemorate the 80th anniversary of this iconic automobile during Deuce Week in March, 2012. Come celebrate Deuce Week at the Petersen! Choose to participate in any or all of these fun-filled events, and know that the money is going to a good cause!

The customized pedal cars will be sold at auction later in 2012 with the proceeds benefitting the Petersen Automotive Museum Foundation. 
     Remember, you can participate in most of the events even if you do not bring a 1932 Ford. Only the Deuce Day car show itself is restricted to 1932 Fords.

Editor’s notes: The following was submitted by Burly Burlile and I have tried to make it conform to my newsletter. If for any reason there are errors on the lines or the information for these records is hard to understand, it is wholly my fault.
The history of Volkswagen land speed racers top speeds, as accurate as I can make it with the information currently available! I am not a historian and have not kept records as to where the information was found. The history below is on 25 or 26 pages and is also attached above in a Word file.  As noted, I record only the "top speed" set at individual LSR meets from around the world and do not focus on "records."  Since numerous meets are held each year at El Mirage, Maxton and Texas, I have taken "only the highest speed for each VW racer" during the specific year as the top El Mirage (or Maxton or Texas) speed recorded. This is a compilation of history I have gathered over a period of twenty three years from result sheets, programs, magazine articles and when available, timing slips. A couple of early speed records have even been taken from sponsor advertisements.  Please feel free to publish this through the SLSRH for their review and comments.
