Drag Racing Is Far Out

Jungle Jim Liberman, born Russell James Liberman on September 12, 1945, was an American funny car drag racer who left an indelible mark on the world of motorsports. His nickname, “Jungle Jim,” perfectly captured his larger-than-life persona and flamboyant style.

Here are some fascinating facts about Jungle Jim:

  1. Driving Backwards at 100 MPH: Jungle Jim was known for his daring antics. After performing his signature burnout, he would drive backwards down the drag strip at a whopping 100 miles per hour (160 km/h)This audacious move thrilled fans and set him apart from other racers.
  2. Unconventional Showmanship: Liberman was not just a racer; he was an entertainer. He toured the United States, primarily participating in drag racing match race events. His refusal to lift off the gas pedal even when a run went haywire showcased his commitment to the showmanship that endeared him to spectators.
  3. Household Name: Despite not always achieving the fastest times, Jungle Jim’s charisma and daring stunts made him a household name. His wheelstands—where he lifted the front wheels of his car for the entire length of the track—during a two-race match against Don Nicholson won the hearts of fans.
  4. Two-Car Team: In 1968, Jungle Jim expanded to a two-car team. His second driver was Clare Sanders. Other drivers associated with his cars included Ron Attebury, Jake Crimmins, Roy Harris, Russell Long, Pete Williams, and his former partner, Lew Arrington.
  5. Legendary Disassembly: Super Stock & Drag Illustrated requested a total disassembly of a Funny Car for an exploded-view picture. While other drivers declined, Jungle Jim complied, adding to his legend.
