What's new


I saw Gary Beck driving the McGee car at SIR I guess, probably in the mid-nineties? One of his qualifying passes, the car was all over the track in the traps, downright scary looking. Later on, I was walking by his pit area, no one around except him in the back of the trailer, doing the clutch, no hangers on or hot chicks in halter tops peddling t-shirts. I stood there for a minute, when he looked up, I said “holy SHIT, you were DRIVING that race car”. He scowled and growled, “ ah hell, what’r you talkin’ about, it was like drivin’ a Cadillac.” Then he grins, smiles, looks straight at me and says” yea, it was skatin” around a little, wasn’t it?” CLASSIC old school top fuel racer....
