Circa 1970-71, this is the famed Mike Sullivan AA/Fuel Altered warming up their combination in the heart of the Firebird pit area. This was one bad animal, painted a very patriotic red, white and blue, typically running a load of roughly 100% Nitro-methane in the tank. Sullivan appeared with four of the "awful - awful" breed in the early 70's before taking a thirty year break from the sport of Drag Racing. Today Sullivan is teamed up with Steve Haight and driver Gary Read, finishing runner-up at the Pepsi Nightfire last August. Photo by Sam Callaway
