This section of Gilchrist Photographic Collectables, is dedicated to all the weekend warriors who are, and always have been, the very heart and soul of hot rodding. The foundation of drag racing, as everyone knows, is grass roots hot rodding. It is the countless little guys, busting knuckles and burning the midnight oil who have created our sport. Without them, there would be no such thing as drag racing.

These galleries hold just a few examples of what grass roots hot rodders where creating in the 1960's and 70's. Scroll down and click on images or titles for enlargements. Enjoy!

Gilchrist Returns To Thompson

The Gasser Reunion 2002 Gallery

For three days in June 2002, numerous Gasser nuts from around the country, including big name Gasser racers, grass roots Gasser racers, hard-core Gasser fans, and even some brand-new Gasser fans returned to Ohio's Thompson Drag Raceway to celebrate those days when Gassers were king. Viva Gassers!

And so, appropriately, Gilchrist also returned to his home track to join the celebration and to once more put his photographic eye on Gassers. This gallery will feature the best of this new black and white work. Check it out, Gilchrist fans, he's better than ever!
