Road Kings of Burbank
The Road Kings is a car club out of Burbank, California. The club was established in November of 1952 by Ralph Marshall. It was initially a drag racing club with a few hot rods mixed in. Some of the early members made reputations for their drag racing exploits later on, such as Don "The Snake" Prudhomme, Tommy Ivo, Tony Nancy, Tom McCourry, Bob Muravez, Roy Fjastad, Don Prieto, Don Johnson, Kenny Safford, Harry Hibler, Jimmy Miles, Don Gaide, Ralph Marshall, Skip Togerson and many more.
Over the time, the club became more hot rod oriented, but they kept arranging a club drag racing series at the LA County Raceday in Palmdale every year. They also produced two charity car shows a year to benefit the high school auto shop programs. In 2012 the club was still active.
