Default Font ID?

Am uploading an image of a sign from the last drag race at Lions Drag Strip in December of 1972. My husband has a slot car drag strip which he has modeled after Lions. When he found out there was going to be an event commemorating the Last Drag Race down in southern Calif. in two weeks he offered to bring his slot car track down there so people could race on it. So I have several signs to recreate, one of which is this one.

Can anyone identify the "Last Drag Race" font or point me to one that is similar? If the shading is custom and not part of the font, that's fine; I'm just worried about the outline right now. The track is 1:32 scale so this sign will not end up being very large. A representation of the font will suffice, but the closer I can get to it the better. I am hoping not to have to trace it or create it from scratch, but I will if I must!
