Ed "the Ace" McCulloch

One of the top runners in the 70's at Firebird was none other than Ed "the Ace" McCulloch. Backed by Revell and English Leather, the "Revellution" AA/Funny Car was a big hit with the fans and was a many time victor at both the Ignitor and Nightfire events. In fact, McCulloch won the Nightfire in 1974 and 1982. Today, the Ace is one of the sport's top crew chiefs, heading up the Funny Car team piloted by Ron Capps, winner of both the season's opening events in both Pomona and Phoenix. Image by Rich Carlson
