Can’t remember who said it….  One of the top crew chiefs… maybe Austin Coil.   When asked if he ever drove to car to see what might be wrong with the car, his response was “No, I wouldn’t get out of the electric chair to drive that thing!”

Hobby shop fire and nitro – hmmm


Picture this – Winter Nationals at L.A. County Fairplex a few years ago.  Top Fuel dragster area.  I see a fellow pumping nitro from a 50 gallon barrel into a mixing can.  Interesting.  I ask him what does it take to make a Top Fuel dragster driver?  He thinks for a few seconds and says “ohhh, I guess a person who can get blown up a few times and still gets back in the car.”


Hmmm yet again . . .
