for the young ones out there,
the M &H sticker is for M & H slicks, MARV RIFCHIN, a tire makers son from MA. talked his dad [Harry] into making tires with an added traction compound [drag racing slicks were born] they were the ONLY slick supplier in the US.
only after the popularity of the slick became apparent did Good Year, Firestone etc... start making racing tires... too cool !
Don Prudhomme won $2000 in top fuel for winning the whole shebang at a heet at Phoenix in '68 , Good Year offered him $300 to run their new racing tires... he declined and ran the M & H slicks !
