First and foremost I would like to thank Mike Ranney of Fruita Colorado and Carl Johnson for their help with the history and also sending us some photos. Mike Ranney actually wrenched on this dragster in the 90’s before being recruited by Shirley Muldowney’s team. I’d additionally like to thank Mike from MTI Racing Tools for sending me some photos.
