Looking back some 32 years, this is the final round of Top Fuel at the `74 Grand American race between Jerry "the King" Ruth and the "Beck & Peets" Export A Dragster of Gary Beck. Fast forward to 2006 and you will find Gary Beck lending assistance to the Nostalgia Top Fuel ride of Rodeck & Cox known as "Cheetah III" with driver Terry Cox at the wheel. Cox won the Ignitor Season Opener this past May and will return in August for the 35th edition of the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals on the 11th-13th. By all indications, we may very well see the strongest field of nitro cars in the history of Firebird, helping to make this anniversary race a truly memorable weekend. Start making plans today to attend the Nightfire - reserved tickets are on sale today (by calling the Firebird hotline at 208.938.8986). Photo by Jim Kelly
