Johnny Bailey


My name is Johnny Bailey I am the driver and builder of 1955 chevy Intruder. I started racing in the early 60s at Spartanburg dragway and Greer dragway until the mid 70s at the start of bracket racing. I am retired now and when I saw the Gasser class start I knew I had to get back into real racing. I know I will never be as fast as a lot of the cars running but Ill be having as much fun.
