With so many racers coming from the state of Arizona to race at the `09 Pepsi Nightfire, we thought it would be fun to look back at this nostalgic photo from old Tucson Dragway. This photo, taken back in 1982, is from Gerald John's Tucson race track during one of the original AHRA Winter Nationals meets. Getting ready to run his nitro Funny Car is Johnny West who not only raced on Jim Tice's barnstormer tour, but also at Firebird several times, too, including a number of Nightfire races.
