Here's a quick couple:



Didn't have many for Hoover since he used this same hauler for several years, then changed to the purple car for the last time. Pioneer was a great sponsor in nhra for many years going back to Shirleys great run

I think it's THE best paint job to date. Thankfully, I was there to capture the special '91 US Nats version where it was a turquoise-blue color on the car

With this 5-weeks-in-a-row race schedule, could you imagine climbing those stairs all day long on Chucks hauler?

Here's (I think) the last old school hauler

Here's Kenny's pre and post 300 years.

The true 300mph hauler ('91-92) and the one a year later ('93)



The hospitality/Kenny's Lounge and the boat he had with him at the time
(Check out the Ford 9000 with the plug-in gauge instrument panel )



Then, he decided to get all Van Halen on us

Safety Safary probably has a hauler now, but here were the previous two:



V Gaines after the one-year-only paint in the previous pics. Love those big, smooth stacks
