*a Jungle Jim memory, by the late Pat Foster*

"At Atco, New Jersey. In about '72, we were supposed to race Jungle in a match race deal. First round went down at 8:00 p.m. sharp!"

"Well, its 7:45 and still no Jungle (hard to believe huh)?"

"The track lines up some local leaker (slow car) and says to me, "Run this Bozo, and maybe he'll show by the second round." We pull up and I'm dressed and just getting in. Everyone in the joint stands up and begins chanting "JUNGLE! JUNGLE! JUNGLE!"

All eyes are on the highway that goes by the track. The starter starts yelling at my guys "Get him in the car! Get him in the car!

I look where everybody is looking and here comes Jungle, strapped in, motor lit and sending flames above the roof, driving that bitch from where they unloaded it out by the highway, past the gates and the ticket booth, through the parking lot and one end of the pits, right out onto the starting line, and then through the water for a huge, smokey burn out!

And the crowd went WILD!!!

I had time for one squeaky little chirp behind the line, and they booed us. Then we blaze the tires against Jungle and again the crowd goes INSANE!!

Tough gig running the Jungle man in his part of the country or anywhere else for that matter.

Jim was the King, hard ass racer and a great showman!

RIP, my man.

Now here come the tears...

Austin Coil summed it up pretty well  when he said 'Jungle has the two best rides in drag racing'
