    REPORTER: "Why did you get into the sport of drag racing?"



    GOODBURN: "Well, I'll tell you how it was today. I guess it was because I didn't know any better. I think that is probably the reason."



    REPORTER: "How many years do you plan on continuing to race?"



    GOODBURN: "Oh I don't know. You've got to face reality, you know. That's just one of those things....but I'll stay on a little while."

    TELERECORDING
    This film includes an interview with Joyce Goodburn. The transcript appears below:

    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: One of the stars of American drag-racing is Joyce Goodburn. Joyce belies the saying that drag-racing is a young man's port -- he is seventy-two years old. He has the reflexes of a young man. In his fuel-injected racer he can cover a hundred yards (metres) in four second from a standing start, yet he waited until he was sixty-six before beginning his racing career.
