Watch Top Fuel Champion Larry Dixon’s Drag Week Story, ‘One Last Pass’

Drag racing fans know Larry Dixon as a three-time NHRA Top Fuel champion, but this past summer, Dixon tried his hand at HOT ROD Drag Week™ for the first time. Driving a ‘66 Chevy II that he bought as a $700 roller in 1988 that he daily drove way back when he was working for Don Prudhomme, Dixon upgraded with a modern General Motors LT4, the same engine from a Corvette Z06, at it and took it on the Drag Week odyssey. Judging by the “One Last Pass” video made by Optima Batteries from his inaugural run in the week-long roadtrip-and-race event, we think Larry might be hooked. We hope to see him out on the road for HOT ROD Drag Week™ 2017 in his Chevy II.
