Larry Dixon Stays #1 With Win in Norwalk, Ohio

If you have been following the bonspeed blog, you already know that Larry Dixon the two-time NHRA Top-Fuel Champion is one of the bonspeed boys. Before Larry became the driver of the Al-Anabi car he proudly wore the bonspeed logo on his helmet. Today, Larry continues winning and promoting bonspeed by wearing our watches and using bonspeed wheels.

Larry is far more than just a driver who wears our watches and uses our wheels. Larry is a good friend and we are so excited to see how well this season is going for him and the Al-Anabi team.

The win in Norwalk, Ohio at the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals places him in the points lead with 176 pts above #2! Dixon is in the groove and we wish him the best in the coming races.

Be sure to cheer Dixon on as the season progresses we are looking forward to another top-fuel championship for our friend.
