Hard to look beyond Force. I was watching some old Diamond P coverage from '94 a couple of days ago, and it was quite ironic listening to John talking about the "kid" Dean Skuza and how young guns like him would be taking over when he quit. Fast forward to now, Dean's been retired for the best part of 2 decades and John is still out there!



I was a fan of Ed McCulloch back in the day as well, and his Miller High Life Oldsmobile is probably still my favourite car of all time...



Honourable mention for Al Hofmann as well.

I have to say Scelzi, he was so quick those few years. Odd beard combo though!

John Force must be up there as one of the greats. Watched "Heart like a wheel" years back and since then Shirley Muldowney is always one of the first names I think of when any kind of drag racing is mentioned.
