Funny Car and Pro Stock racer “Fast Eddie” Schartman began his door-slammer racing career behind the wheel of this Jackshaw Chevrolet–sponsored (Cleveland, Ohio) 1963 409 Impala Super Stock car, that was match-raced throughout the southeastern United States with reasonable success. Schartman’s exploits would catch the attention of none other than soon-to-be “Team Mercury” racer “Dyno Don” Nicholson. Eddie contracted to drive Don’s ’62 409, and the rest as they say is drag-racing history! Photo courtesy of “Fast Eddie” Schartman.
