Blower Explosion Shots that Made Me Famous! by Gil Rebilas

Arley Langlo had this blower explode on his burnout at the Arizona Nationals at Firebird International Raceway outside of Phoenix.

This one was a complete surprise! As Mark Oswald was coming through the lights;(the finishline area), there was a loud BOOM and plexiglass landing all around me! I didn’t know what happened! I was shocked at what I got after I developed the film in my motel room! As I was developing the film, Dave Wallace, the Editor of “Drag Racing Magazine” out of Peterson Publishing, yelled out, “I want it!” It ended up as a 2 page spread, or what they call today, a “Double Truck”! It’s amazing how you can see all of the pieces of the plexisglass windshield exploding into the air and the front half of the body being distorted by the force of the blast!

Check back with Arizona Auto Scene soon as we’ll be releasing more blower explosion shots by Gil Rebilas.
