Russell James “Jungle Jim” Liberman and his curvaceous sidekick ”Jungle Pam” Hardy were flamboyant showstoppers touring the U.S. drag racing scene throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s. His over-the-top showmanship, complete dedication to his fans, and inspirational personality won the hearts and minds of racing enthusiasts from coast-to-coast. With a reputation of fearlessness, Jungle Jim was known for driving backwards at 100 mph after doing his burnout, 1000ft wheelstands, and refusal to lift off the gas no matter how awry a race is going. Competing in mostly match racing, he only has one official NHRA national event win under his belt from 1975. That said, he’s still ranked #17 of the best NHRA drivers of all time. His popularity rightfully skyrocketed quickly which led to a demanding schedule averaging 100 events per year during the 1970s.
