1970 NHRA Springnationals Top Fuel Champ Gibson Named Grand Marshal of SHRA FINALS

Former NHRA Top Fuel national event winner Bob Gibson has been named the Grand Marshal of the Southwest Heritage Racing Association CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS that will take place Saturday November 8th at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, TX. Gibson had a short but rewarding career in the early Top Fuel wars of drag racing.

At this race, Gibson took out Jimmy Dupstadt (who had run Low ET at a 6.59), Don ‘The Beachcomber’ Johnson’s fueler, Bennie Osborn, Don Moody and in the final defeated ‘Superman’ Jim Nicoll for the title.
