50th NHRA Winternationals


If you're going to be at the NHRA Winternationals this weekend, make sure and stop by and say hello to Larry and Roland Leong as they help the NHRA celebrate 50 years of drag racing history at Pomona Raceway.

This is a landmark moment for the NHRA, as they kick off the 2010 race season, and celebrate 50 years of drag racing at one of their most prestigious events. A large assembly of historic race cars will be displayed, and Larry will be on hand with Roland Leong and the restored 1970 'Hawaiian' funny car throughout the weekend. It's also the 40th anniversary of Larry & Roland's Winternationals victory, which occurred one year after a spectacular crash with the then new 'Hawaiian' flopper. NHRA's web site readers recently voted the 1969 'Hawaiian' crash and subsequent victory at the 1970 race as the number 11 most memorable moment in Winternationals history. Check out all the details of this important event at the 50th Anniversary Winternationals website that NHRA recently put online.
