72 Year Old Drag Racer In Oldsmobile 442

By  | 


72 year old Judi Bureski along with her husband Bill, who have both race since the 60s, want to win an NHRA national event in their Stock Eliminators and show no sign of letting up.

Each of their 3,895lb. cars has a 455-inch engine,370 hp and Turbo 400 transmissions.
The Bureskis may change classes but never brands. “I know these cars inside and out, and at one time I worked for Olds,” Bill Bureski said. “These are real Stock Eliminator cars that are old school. They are maxxed out. Other cars can run farther under the index, but they have replacement heads, intakes, and valvetrain parts. If there isn’t a heads-up run, all is equal. Everybody is capable of winning a national event or a division points race. It’s much more competitive today than 20 years ago.”

It shows that as long as you want to keep on doing something, you can, no matter what age.
“The original factory parts are getting scarce, but we saved a lot of stuff through the years so we have a good stockpile to keep us going,” Bill Bureski said. “We’ll keep racing as long as our health holds up.”
