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
