'The Gut' and the Glory: A Story in Photos

'The Gut' and the Glory: A Story in Photos

Many racers play the street-car gig at Yello Belly Drag Strip, and their cars come in a variety of shapes and styles. Some look as if they roared to life out of a muscle car magazine. Some resemble the imported cars known as "rice burners" from Fast & Furious, a popular street racing movie series. Others look as if they were recently picked up from the junkyard. Some spit fire, and most of them smoke and growl. Tires flop, carburetors explode, headers blow — some never even reach the finish line. These photos examine Yello Belly Drag Strip and the accident that killed Blake Williams. All photos by Danny Fulgencio
