[We are sad to report that legendary NHRA starter Buster Couch passed away yesterday. Our deepest sympathies to all who knew him. Pete Keller sent in the following photo as a tribute to the great man. bp]

This photo was taken in front of the tower at the 1972 Grandnationals at Sanair in Canada just after our win in the Top Fuel final. From left to right -- unknown, Buster Couch and The Van Iderstine, Young & Marshall crew (shoe Art Marshall, Pete Keller, Don Young, and "Fat Jack" Bashford). This was the last national event ever won by a front engine top fuel dragster.
