Larry Dixon on Dragweek video
« on: December 18, 2016, 02:26:39 PM »
Saw this video today on another site - Top Fuel driver Larry Dixon on Dragweek 2016. It's a nice professionally done 10 minute video put out by Optima Battery. Forgive the need to see GM vehicles, if you watch you can catch brief glimpses of Doug, Jay and Scott M. Here's the link on Youtube:

Yes, didn't he say he'd owned his car since the mid 1980s?  What a short-timer  8)

I read something about that on facebook(haven't watched the vid yet). Kudos to Hotrod and Larry for not making a big deal out of it during DragWeek. I didn't even know he was there. He was just another enthusiast having a good time. :)

Careful of playing that game Jay..... I can fight back in other ways.

"ohhh, so you got that Shelby the year I was born.... hrmmm, interesting."
