This sure looks like an engineering marvel. Take a step back in time to 1969. This is a vintage photo of the national record holding Ringer & Sounders twin-engined D/Dragster. Amazingly enough, this shot by Ken Rhodes is from Firebird’s first NHRA World Championship Series meet following a pass and if you look closely – you can see it’s taken during the weighing process (on the original track scales, which were first located on the west-side of the pits). This is the car that won the first Comp eliminator title at Firebird’s Division 6 point’s race some 42-plus years ago. Image from the Rick Hale photo archives
