72 year old Judi Bureski along with her husband Bill have been racing since the ’60s, and Judi is still dropping the hammer on her '70 442, for mid 11s at 117mph

the white car has not missed a racing season the past 31 years, hitting a best of 11.09 at 118.

the purple with white conv top is also theirs, and is a 1970 Oldsmobile 442, an Indianapolis 500 Pace Car model that actually was on the track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Bill hit the quarter-mile in the 1960s, first with Pontiacs. The Bureskis switched to Oldsmobile when they bought a brand-new ’68 Hurst Olds and immediately turned it into a race car. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in 1976 after rolling off their trailer while traveling down an interstate.
