Speed Age magazine from 1969 was a re-titling of Drag Strip magazine. It was an attempt by Rex Publishing to pivot from drag racing and resurrect the motorsport focus and brand of the original Speed Age started in 1947. But it only lasted for a short period from May until December, 1969.
The magazine was a full-size monthly publication. Numbering continued from its predecessor.
Speed Age was owned by Lou Kimzey Sr. He operated under different company names including Rex Publishing, Magazine Publishing Services, or Kimtex Corporation. In the 1950s, Mr Kimzey published DIG magazine, and in the 1960s published teen and adult titles including Cavalier, Teenville, Black Belt and Teenset. And in June, 1971 he started Easyriders, the first biker lifestyle magazine. Mr. Kimzey died in 1997 in Los Angeles.
A total of 8 issues were printed from May, 1969 through December, 1969. Magazine cover images are complete for this title.
