The Nightfire has had a number of professional racers run the event over the years. This photo dates back to the mid-80's, during an era when Firebird featured a 16-car field of alcohol floppers, in addition to fuel Funny Cars (note: John Force and Dale Pulde pictured in the background). Paired up in this picture are the many-time Nightfire winner Chuck Beal [far side] next to the "Dream Weaver" of John Weaver and family. You can really tell this is a nostalgic picture when you look at the track signage that includes companies like: Ace Realty, Elm's, Nendels, IB & T, KISS, Cal's and other background features of the way Firebird originally appeared. Pretty cool photo in our book.
