Dixon Wins Again - Top Fuel Win In Norwalk!

PHOTO ABOVE: Larry Dixon the two-time NHRA Top Fuel champion is all smiles with bonspeed co-owner Michael Anthony at the "bonspeed Rock-n-Roll Bash" in Las Vegas, Nevada last November 2008.

You can bet that Larry Dixon had just as big a smile in Norwalk, OH last weekend, June 28th, 2009. He not only grabbed the #1 Top Fuel qualifying position but he backed it up with another win.

This win has placed Dixon firmly in the #2 spot overall and looking good for the upcoming race to the championship. It looks like he is settling into the new sponsor and dragster.

Again we must mention that he won this race wearing his bonspeed/Bonneville watch!

bonspeed's Michael Anthony Goes on Tour Today With Chickenfoot!

bonspeed co-owner, Michael Anthony, and his highly-anticipated band, Chickenfoot, head out TODAY on the first part of their world tour! The first leg kicks off for almost 30 days in Europe at the Nova Rock Festival in Austria and then, after cruising through the other continent, Michael and Chickenfoot will return to North America for the North American leg.

After a sold-out “Road Test” tour of just 9 cities and top-5-charting debut of the album, the band is sure to sell out and wow crowds. Support the bonspeed boy by rocking out at one of the shows, by joining the Chickenfoot Fanclub or by purchasing the new CD.

Michael told us that he loves touring but is going to miss his freshly rebuilt ’57 Nomad. The car just came back from Troy Trepanier’s Shop with new mods including a set of 18/20 bonspeed Delta Wheels.

Michael Anthony, part owner of bonspeed Wheels and one of the bad to the bone bonspeed Boys, is gearing up for the release of the first album from his new band, Chickenfoot! Today, (June 5, 2009) is the day the album drops and has been dubbed by the band as Footday, jabbing at the band’s obvious strange name.

The even more electrifying news is that tonight, Chickenfoot will also be rocking on the new Conan O’Brien led Tonight Show. FootRageous! With it being the first week of the new Conan show, of course the band will be there to leave their footprint with a live performance of “Oh Yeah”.

bonspeed Wheels is stoked to have their co-owner grace the stage at the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and reminds bonspeed Wheels enthusiasts to support Michael and Chickenfoot.
