Car Craft All Star Drag Racing Team - All-Star Glory

By John Kiewicz, Photography by Chuck Schifsky, John Kiewicz, Scott Killeen

NMCA Racer All-Stars
If there's one notable about the All-Star Team it's that it has never been afraid to change with the times. As drag racing has changed over the years, so has the All-Star team. The biggest change this year is the inclusion of three driver categories from the fastest growing segment of the sport, "street legal" drag racing, as represented by the National Musclecar Association. You've read about these street-legal potent performers in the pages of Car Craft and Hot Rod magazines, and you made history by voting for your picks as the first-ever winners in this new category.
