This is John "The Zookeeper" Mulligan as he screams down Orange County Raceway in the Beebe Bros. "Fighting Irish" Top Fueler, circa 1969.
One of Drag Racing's Top Fuel standouts in sixties was the late John Mulligan. Nicknamed the "Zookeeper." John had the capacity to coral the rest of the animals, like the "Snake and the "Mongoose." He most-certainly would have remained a major force in drag racing, had it not been for his early demise.
Seen here, in his heyday, this painting was inspired from a classic Leslie Lovett photo. It is a fitting tribute to great Driver and a great Photographer
