For those of you who love trivia racing questions, here's one that by our standards would be a rather difficult one to guess unless you were at the first NHRA World Championship Series meet at Firebird in 1969 (May 10-11). To be quite honest, this would be a challenge to answer for every member of the original Firebird crew let alone any racers that might have been in attendance at that inaugural event. Thanks to the Rick Hale historical archives and the original photography of Ken Rhodes, we were able to learn that this SS/BA Barracuda was the first recipient of the Best Appearing award at Firebird. This Hemi-ride was called “Double Trouble” and was campaigned by Terry Moore and Larry Fors out of Port Orchard, Wash.
