The late Ray Strasser was a fixture at Firebird for quite a number of years. Running the “Insanity” AA/Funny Car, this photo is from the 1988 Ignitor with driver Gary Ritter behind the wheel. Although Ray and his wife Shirley never won an Ignitor or Nightfire major event title, they were always in the mix of things with a series of cars that spanned the 1973-1992 era of Funny Car racing with quite a variety of “Insanity” named floppers.
