Over the years, tracks with names like Daytona, Sebring, Targa Florio and LeMans have become synonymous with the 289 Cobra. The races at these venues, in which Cobras demonstrated clear dominance, varied in duration from 4 to 24 hours. The distances were measured in hundreds of miles or thousands of kilometers. But there was also a group of tracks whose names are not as well known—Pomona, Indianapolis Raceway Park, Fremont, Arlington. The races run at these places did not last for hours, or even minutes. They were over in seconds and the length of the track was a mere 1,320 feet. We’re talking about drag racing, and the Shelby creation that dominated in these events was the Cobra Dragonsnake.
