Good picture of Gary Beck. (wally doesn't look overly enthused holding a Canadian flag!! Lol


Your right Wally does't look happy. Beck was a landed immigrant and his former wife (Penny)  is Canadian.

 

And later ..

Those two ended up a legend of sorts, very sad that Jim's life ended tragically, They were a matched pair of showmanship!

Whatever became of Gary Beck and Frank Hawley? I think that's his name.

 Frank ran a drag racing school at the Panoma Fair Grounds in California for many years.  Maybe he is still doing it.

The last I knew Beck was a housing contractor near LA and Frank Hawley had a drag racing school in Gainesville Fl and part time schools in Pomona Ca.

"If I remember correctly, and if they are still there."

 If is the biggest word in the dictionary.

   Think so ??   I thought he was getting out of my way………… I still remember his launch, it looks a whole lot different at track level.

 

  I'm in a 66 Chevelle  behind him in the other lane.

 

  The wagon is his Lubick Olds repainted in 1975.

Was there any chance of some kind of payout (in cash, parts or services) when running Holley, Edelbrock, Centerline, STP (for example) stickers on your drag car when racing at anything other than a true national event, at tracks like Cayuga or St Thomas?

There used to be a beautiful orange '69 Camaro that ran Cayuga regularly, and I think one of the reasons it appealed to me (over many other cars) was the fact that it didn't run any stickers on it. Although the car had a full chassis and was slammed with massive "meats" under the back, I could totally picture it as a street driven car. At an IHRA event held at Cayuga, the owner of the Camaro did put stickers on it, in hopes of some contingency money, but removed them after the event.

I never understood covering ones car with stickers if there was no chance of any real benefit. Advertising for a local car dealer, parts house, paint shop, tire shop etc I can understand, but coating a car in stickers "just because" .... that I don't get.

Am I missing something?

This appears to be Jungle Jim, but the woman pictured doesn't seem to have her weight distributed quite the same as Pam Hardy did (yeah, trying to be polite here).  She also doesn't appear to have the typical "trophy girl" physique either .... did Jungle "trade up" at some point?

 They paid money for Class and Eliminator wins at National Events and Points races.  Not all companies paid for class wins.

Pint and a Pound: Back at Cayuga years back, if you won your'e class running stock, at that time you got a pat on the back and a Gold Oval water transfer decal that stated :
"Dragway Park"

"Class Winner"

(Had a number of them on my side window. Lol )

  I forget the number, but I looked at it last year.   It used a gear drive set up and not a chain like some did.

big daddy found it used 21% power as opposed to 7% in a conventional set up and gave up on it. the drive was designed by the cole brothers.

We use many variations of Traction Compound as well. The best I have found is the Rosin used by Bull riders smile  Love the wagon !

  No-one broke.  They used some traction compound that didn't work as it was suppose to.  There was a road grader scraping the track, then a washing / scrubbing with Tide Soap by hand and with a street cleaner.  I think it was about a 5 hour wait, then John Troxell went up and made some test launch's with his SS/O Olds.    1975 WCS Meet.

They must sell a lot of "TIDE" takes quite a bit to scrub down a whole track.
(Man, a 5 hour wait!!)

 That was a 1970 Race at Cayuga. Poole was still in SS and I don't Gauthier was in Pro Stock at that time.
