Taken in either `69 or `70, the “Scotty” AA/Fuel Dragster (or maybe a Top Gas digger, not certain) lights the hides up at an early World Championship Series meet. Notable in this photo is the Bill Muchow “Mr. Explosion” Ford (along with some other shoebox Fords and Chevys) in the Firebird staging lanes. If you look closely behind the dragster you’ll also notice track General Manager Bill New holding his ears in either his first or second year at the helm. Image by States Sports.
