NHRA US Nationals Drag Racing Souvenir Program 42nd Annual 1996 Schumacher
- 1996 42nd Annual NHRA Drag Racing U.S. Nationals
- Indianapolis Raceway Track, Indianapolis, Indiana
- This program has an autograph on the back which reads Tony Schumacher. It was found within an extensive automobile memorabilia collector's items. The collector has passed, so there is no way to substantiate this autograph. Comparing to other autographs found in ebay and google, it appears Schumacher uses a full cursive "S" at the beginning of his last name, which this one does not use, but this would have been his rookie year in the driver's seat. Here's more from Wikipedia:
"The very first race for which Schumacher qualified was in 1996, at the MAC Tools U.S. Nationals, qualifying 16th. However, during that event, tragedy struck during qualifying when then points leader Blaine Johnson was killed in an accident. Schumacher would have raced Blaine the following day. He honored the fallen driver as he idled down the track. He made it all the way to the finals, before losing to his former DSR teammate,Cory McClenethan."
