Pro Stock Drag Racing

Although many of the diecast compaines have released peplicas of the cars of some of the top names in drag racing history, I believe Action had some of the most detailed replicas on the shelves. They seemed to focus on the professional racing world in replicating some of the most famous cars of some of the most famous drivers in NHRA and NASCAR. This page shows a few of the coolest Pro Stock cars in 1/64th scale diecast I have ran across. Click the pic of any car for more information of the Pro Stock drivers. 


Bob Glidden Ford Probe

Bob Glidden retired from Pro Stock racing in 1997 and returned in 2010. He retired as a driver with the most wins in NHRA history. HIs 1987 Thunderbird was once referred to as the most feared car in Pro Stock drag racing. 

Jeg Coughlin, Jr. Oldsmobile

Jeg Coughlin Jr. has secured his place in NHRA drag racing history with 6 world championships and 76 wins in his career. The youngest son of legend Jeg Coughlin Sr.is ranked 9th amoung of best drag racers of all time. 

Warren Johnson Pontiac

In 1997, Johnson became the first pro stock driver to exceed 200 mph. In 2010, Warren Johnson became the oldest professional winner as he won the  AAA Midwest Nationals championship.  

Greg Anderson Pontiac

Greg Anderson served as Warren Johnson's crew chief during Johnson's four of his six championship wins. He began his driving career in 1998 driving for the Summit racing team.

Larry Morgan Pontiac Firebird

Larry Morgan Racing is based out of Newark Ohio. Larry has 19 career wins and drove his way into 45 final rounds. He now provides engines to pro stock race trams on the NHRA tour.

Allen Johnson Dodge

Allen Johnson has reached 26 career wins and drove to 55 final rounds. Best ET 6.472 secs. at a speed of 214.35 mph. Now sponsored by Mopar Magneti Marelli driving a pro stock Dodge Dart.

Jerry Eckman Pontiac Firebird

In 1997 at the Spring Nationals in Columbus, Ohio, Jerry Eckman and the Dodge Boys experienced a huge explosion in their pit area. It was later discovered to be a nitrous oxide explosion and the team was caught cheating in pro stock racing. Nitrous was a banned substance on the NHRA circut. After 15 years of embarrasment, Jerry is returning to race again and clear his name.

Darrell Alderman Dodge

A sad cloud hovers over this driver.Darrell Alderman was suspended indefinetly after he was found guilty of possessing and distributing cocaine. I'm not sure of the whole story on Alderman's career, but you can click the pic of his Dodge Avenger and come to your own conclusion.

Jeg Coughlin Jr. Chevy Colbalt

2007 Chevy Pro Stock Cobalt sponsord by "JEGS"

Roy Hill Ford Probe

This is a driver I am totally unfamiliar with as far as pro stock racing. I do know he owns and oporated a cool drag racing school. Click the pic of Roy Hill's Ford Probe for more information of him. 

Sox & Martin Duster

This 1973 Duster replica of Sox & Martin is made by Hot Wheels. This is how the pro stock cars of the 70s looked, closer to the cars driven on the streets daily. Now, they are full race cars and the most expensive to build and maintain of all the class of NHRA race cars. I was pretty young and wild during the 70s and didn't pay much attention to professional drag racing, as much as I did partisipating in street racing my Mustangs.

Don Carlton Mopar Missile Duster

Another Hot Wheels replica of Don Carlton's Mopar Missile Plymouth Duster of the 70s. Although there were several Mopar Missile cars, This is one cool replica of the Duster. 

Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins Chevy Vega

Bill "Grumpy" Jenking or "The Grump" is a name that will come up in any drag racing conversation. The "Grump" was an enhgine builder and a drag racer from 1965 to 1975.  The man was amazing and could squeeze every ounce of horse power from those Chevrolets he built and drove. He recently passed away in 2012. RIP Grumpy!

Grumpy's Toy.

An action shot of Grumpy's Toy getting busy. A fine 1/64th scale Hot Wheels replica of Bill Jenkins's 67 Camaro.
