THE NEW GARY BECK SHIRT FROM RED LINE SHIRT CLUB
Red Line Shirt Club salutes one of the greatest Top Fuel owner/drivers ever to blast down the quarter, Gary Beck. Immortalized by his 1972 US Nationals win, Beck won again in 1973 with the Beck & Peets car, setting low e.t. (5.96) in the semifinals and top speed (243.90 mph) in a come-from-behind final-round win over Carl Olson. He remained a force at the highest level of the sport for the next 15 years, winning NHRA Top Fuel championships in 1974 and 1983 and nearly winning the 1973, 1975, 1980, 1981, and 1984 titles. He just missed the title in all five second-place finishes, and won both times in landslides. Beck is also noted for one of the sport's greatest accomplishments, he was the first Top Fuel driver into the 5.60s (1975), 5.50s (1981), 5.40s (1982), and 5.30s (1983).
