Drag Racer magazine was published bi-weekly from June 27th, 1959 through October 3rd, 1959. It was published by Dan Roulston who functioned as the publisher and editor. The business address was 257 S. Main Street, Orange CA.
Mr. Roulston had previously been an editor for a weekly newsletter owned by Chet Herbert, Drag News. When Mr. Herbert's sister became the editor in 1959, Mr. Roulston left and formed this magazine.
The magazine was roughly a 40 page offering with a focus on California drag racing, motor boat racing and Bonneville. To avoid becoming a "house organ" for one of the sanctioning bodies like the NHRA or AHRA, the magazine stated its independence with the motto, "Coverage To All - Controlled by None". It had a distinctive checkboard cover. Since it had major advertisers, it is not clear why it had a short life.
