 Auto World's Legends of the Quarter Mile

1/18th scale
1971 "Whipple & McCulloch" Plymouth Barracuda NHRA Funny Car

Piloted by "The Ace" Ed McCulloch.

 

   With six NHRA U.S. National's titles to his credit, the man they call "Ace" has visited the Indy winner's circle more than just about any other driver, and he's been there in both a Top Fuel Car and in a Funny Car, and he's been there in three different decades, and not many drivers can make either of those statements. Ed's first, and maybe his most emotional Indy win, came in 1971 while he was driving the famed "Whipple and McCulloch" car that was owned by his good friend, Art Whipple. The win was extra special because it came just one year after a towing accident saw the team's first car burn to the ground on the way to the Nationals. Deprived of the opportunity to compete the year before, Ed and Art more than made up for it with one of the most dominating performances in Indy history, including a string of 6.60 elapsed times that left everyone in their wake, including Sammy Miller, "Big" Jim Dunn, Connie Kalitta and Dale Pulde. Dale, who was driving one of the Mickey Thompson cars, had the best seat in the house in the finals to watch the Ace win the first NHRA national event of his career, and what a perfect place to do it!
