Russell James "Jungle Jim" Liberman, Jr
Birth: Sep. 12, 1945
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 9, 1977
West Chester
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA

American Drag Racer. Known as "Jungle Jim", he was named #17 on the list of the Top 50 NHRA drivers. He was known as a flamboyant showman who would often drive backwards at 100 mph after doing his burnout, and he would refuse to lift off the gas when a run was completely out of shape. Touring primarily the United States, he averaged an estimated 100 events per year during the 1970s. He lost his life in an auto accident, colliding his Corvette head-on with a bus. (bio courtesy of: Wikipedia)
