The Flyin' Hawaiian


In case you missed National Dragster editor Phil Burgess' words about Larry's days as a funny car driver, then follow the link to Phil's blog over at the NHRA web site. Click here to read the article. Phil gives a pretty thorough account of the Hawaiian's airborne antics at the 69 Winternationals, and points to several highlights of Larry's driving career.

Also part of the post are several rarely seen photographs including the aerodynamic gymnastics seen above, as well as a follow up post that shows the crash sequence as published by the Los Angeles Times.
