The Glory Days Of Drag Racing : We lost a great one today - Raymond Beadle owner and driver of the Blue Max Funny Car. He won 3 consecutive NHRA Funny Car championships - 1979 to 1981 & 3 IHRA Funny Car championships 1975,76 and ‘81.
My dad introduced me to him when I was pretty young, besides being a legend on the strip, he was always a stand up guy and took the time to talk to everyone, sharing his wealth of knowledge and telling some great stories. He’s just one of those guys that you can’t say enough about.
