Circa 1971, this is the famed "Joker" AA/Fuel Dragster of Dick Kalivoda. One of the real giants of Top Fuel racing in the Pacific Northwest, the Norton, Kalivoda & Hamlin entry regularly competed against the "King", the "Ace" and many others. Kalivoda won the 1969 World Championship Series meet at Firebird by stopping Ron Rolstad in a 7.42-201.92 to a quicker 7.37-199.56 decision. Kalivoda was presented a Division 6 Hall of Fame honor at the Northwest Banquet on December 6th. Look closely in background and you'll see Idaho's first Funny Car known as "Gentle Ben" of Ron McDowell & Jerry Taylor. Classic photo by Johnnie Corn
