During the 70's we did everything in our power
to put Pro Stock racing on the map at Firebird Raceway. For nearly a decade
many of the top Pro Stock teams competed at a variety of events including this
wild match up between the home-town hero - Pete Sather's "Banzai"
Vega Wagon against the famed "Dandy Dick" Landy with his mighty
Mopar from southern California. Chewin' on his trademark cigar, Landy was
always a favorite anytime he rolled into Firebird. Sather, who called Ontario
(Ore.) home, tried his best to be stop the heavy hitters, but was always
a couple tenths short of the top runners.
