OVERVIEW
Drag Strip magazine was a re-titling of Modern Rod magazine. It was a full-size monthly publication with a primary focus on drag racing. The first issue was volume 3 and series number 1.

In the March, 1969 issue, the magazine was combined with a resurrected version of the old Speed Age title. And then in the May, 1969 issue, the titles were swapped, with Speed Age taking the lead and Drag Strip preceeded by the dreaded "formerly" label. Speed Age was an attempt to resurrect the racing focus and original brand, but it only lasted for a short period until December, 1969.

Modern Rod, Drag Racing and Drag Strip titles were published by Lou Kimzey Sr through either Magazine Publishing Services or Kimtex Corporation. In the 1950s, Mr Kimzey published DIG magazine, and in the 1960s published teen and adult titles including Cavalier, Teenville, Black Belt and Teenset. And in June, 1971 he started Easyrider, the first biker lifestyle magazine. Mr. Kimzey died in 1997 in Los Angeles.
