Gary Beck
FameRank: 6

"Gary Beck" is a two-time World champion drag racing driver. Born and raised in the United States, Beck married a Canada/Canadian and they made their home in her native Edmonton, Alberta. He competed in stock car racing before switching to drag racing.

A virtual unknown, in 1972 he abruptly came to international prominence when he won the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Top Fuel dragster title at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, Indiana. His win marked the first of a number of important championships and in 1974, he drove his Nitromethane/nitro-fueled dragster to a record setting three NHRA and two American Hot Rod Association (AHRA) titles and earned the first of his two World Championships. Beck was named driver of the year by Drag News and top fuel driver of the year by Car Craft. Among his 1975 victories, he took the Canadian Open Top Fuel championship.

There's still some concern of where we're going to be a year from now with the third shift and there's also a concern with what's going to happen in St. Thomas and also what's going to happen in Windsor.
