Larry Dixon arrived at the NHRA U.S. Nationals with a 30 point lead in the top fuel championship chase. The lead was his reward for being #1 for the first portion of the 2010 season.
The U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis is known as the "Big Go" and thought of as the Superbowl of drag racing. With a tough field and every driver and team wanting the edge, Indy is important. Dixon was qualified #1 and used that momentum towards the win.
Dixon and the Al-Anabi team have now reached a milestone of 10 finals in a single season and this his 102nd final places him atop the record books.
Way to go Larry! We know it is because he rides on bonspeed wheels and wears a bonspeed/Bonneville watch!
