I believe this to have also been from 1974. Although I do not know if "Jungle" Jim Liberman was actually at the wheel. As he often had hired drivers for match races around the country.

 From Mike Kertzman comes the following:

 

"As a local teenager I had the fortunate experience of being a team "Go-for" on a Vancouver based BB/FC Team back in the late 70's/early 80's. It was the team of Butch Nadgwick, Terry Smith and brothers Bobby and Danny Gilland. The car was the "Rebellion" that they ran at all the tracks here in the Northwest. And in this particular picture, I believe Butch Nadgwick is the pilot Stomping the Loud Pedal".

Thanks for the contribution Mike!
