Just found this page. We did not even know its existence. If it is not too late, I will try to get Gary to post here. Is anyone still here?

Gary,  I gave your crewmember some cash at sonoma last summer after you blew the body off in front of me.  I got my pic taken with you the year before and have always considered you a class act.   Id gladly pay to be a public sponsor of your team.  Doug

Gary, I wrenched on IHRA T/ F for 7 years. Please do a survey to see how many people would love to have just a certificate to frame as a public sponser of your car in exchange to keep you out there running. Think of the concept and the money. " publicly owned" on the side of your car. You are a true patriot of helping youth understand HP and technology. Anonymous

I recently saw Gary and his son Steve at Sacramento raceway Park for " Funny Car Fever".  Gary ran his "Teacher's Pet car and I got to see him and his sone make some passes. Gary and his  son signed signed a photo for me. Steve was going for his funny car license.  I wish I could have seen him in the 70s but better late then never ! He is a nice guy and so is Steve. Keep the Densham name racing for years.
Anonymous (Rookie) wrote on Sat, 20 Feb 2010 05:27:11 GMT reply Good to see you still showing up at the track and running a car, man.  Gary the day you cannot afford to be racing is the day I have to stop being a fan. I know especially in todays economy it is very tough to find the dollars needed to do the racing thing and if I ever had any money to sponsor you I certainly would because for you it has never been about the money other than enough money to run.  God bless you Gary Densham and I wish you the best of luck this year. Hope to see you in Joliet in 2010.  Maybe you can leave me a pit pass to spend a little extra time with you and the crew.  Email me anytime.  dave

Hey Gary,

I know you won't remember me but I was in your auto shop class at El Rancho in the early 70's.  I'll never forget the times that you took a couple of us down to the drag strip at night and made us feel like we were helping out.  Hope all is well and glad to see you were able to continue in the sport for all these years.

There is a post from Sunday 5 July 2009 about the "Ranch House Racers'. I used to hang there with the brothers and Gary. I have lost touch of NHRA racing totally until about a few months ago. I would love to hear back from Gary or any of the Curt's Tire gang.

Gary only ran qualifying in session #3 which wasn't shown on television.  He did run today on race day though.

Do not see Gary's name in the results from Denver? Guess he isn't racing. Less and less cars are even going to the races anymore! Guess the economy has hit the race teams >( If you show up you make the show at a lot of races these days...

The last time I saw Gary he had a 40 Ford Coupe and was hanging out at Curts Tire Shop in Artesia or could be found hanging out at Chuck Finders Shop,just down the road.Steve Plueger,Ron Brizio,Roger Garten were all regulars at Curts Tire shop on Friday night for first round of "Beer Call",lotsa fun ,lotsa "Grab Ass",B.S.flowing heavy,with the Edmundson Gang in charge at the old ranch house,bunch of 18,19,20 year old kids heading down to Long Beach Dragstrip to see some of the greatest drag racing ever.You shoulda seen the old rods we drove back then in 1963,it was a beautiful  time in our lives and we all lived and breathed race cars..........handwriting on the wall as they say.Here is hoping Gary will get some major sponsorship,as money is tite right now.If not Gary will just have to build a Nostagia car and go racing 70s style again with his old buddy Steve Plueger...............Best Regards Gary

 I would like to know if racing is still as much fun as it was when you lost the front axel on the first car you built on Greenbrier in Bellflower California ?

Gary can be seen in The "FunnyCar Summer" movie at sacramanto raceway Park. A great movie with great nostalgia fc footage. I hope he makes it back soon. I spoke with jack Beckman at the Sacramento Raceway Park  race  this past weekend and said Gary will be racing part time. Jack had a bad accident on the first funny car pass and the American Revolution body was totalled. Jack is fine thank goodness.

Gary is looking for sponsors right now so that he can race.

Where is Gary? I thought he had a sponsor and was running the full season?
