Circa May 1969, this is the Markley, Beck & Rhoades blown BB/Dragster. Competing at Firebird's first Division 6 World Championship Series Meet, Gary Beck was at the wheel of this dragster, shown getting serviced between rounds in the pit area. Beck finished runner-up in a class called Super Eliminator, losing to Reno's Bill Landon, 8.27 to an 8.52 by the Seattle-based team. Photo from the Rick Hale archives.
