Circa 1970, here is the famed Whipple & McCulloch AA/Funny Car. One year earlier, "the Ace" competed at Firebird in a AA/Fuel Dragster before switching over to the Flopper ranks. Living in the Northwest for a number of years, McCulloch was most definitely one of the most dominent Funny Car drivers of all-time at Firebird. This Firebird pit scene shot was taken the year before the start of the Ignitor Nitro Opener (which began in 71). Another classic amatuer image from Emmett's Johnnie Corn
