Top Gas was a great class that was shot in the heart by NHRA in 1972 in favor of Comp Eliminator. When we go back over the class Jack Jones would be on the short list of everybody's favorites. Ironically NHRA used Top Gas racer, Jack as the model for the "Oscar" still used today.

 


 

Herm Petersen climbing into his "Beach Imports" AA/FD at Edmonton Raceway in 1969. This is just before Herm teamed up with the late Sam Fitz to become one of the strongest Northwest fuel efforts in the late 60s into the mid 70s.

More often than not, Tommy Ivo was his only crew. Even though there were times he didn't want to, he always made sure he made the next round and/or met his match race commitments. There were crew guys later, the most memorial was John "Tarzan" Austin.

Not much info, Jack Approved is all I've got. Circa 1960.
