In 1964 Sydney Allard founded the British Drag Racing Association and served as its President, promoting the First International Drag Festival featuring an American team which included the best of the best drag racers at that time: Don Garlits, Tommy Ivo, Tony Nancy and Dante Duce. He did the same event the next year and a second Allard-Chrysler dragster was constructed for the 1965 Drag Festival. Sadly, Sydney Allard died of cancer in April, 1966, and only a few days after an office fire destroyed much of the firm’s archives.

Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.
