Catching Up with Larry Dixon

Newer fans of drag racing have probably never heard of Jeb Allen, who won Top Fuel championships with three different sanctioning bodies – AHRA in 1977, IHRA in 1980, and NHRA in 1981. Three-time NHRA Top Fuel champion Larry Dixon remembers how as a teenager he watched this meteoric star of the sport. Following a successful Jr. Dragster career, Krohn earned licenses in Super Comp, Nostalgia Top Fuel, Top Alcohol Dragster, Nostalgia Funny Car and Top Alcohol Funny Car – all within a year. Although he is no longer active in NHRA Top Fuel competition, Dixon still has a presence on track. At its inception, the dragster triggered a legal battle between Dixon and the NHRA. The Larry Dixon Top Fuel Experience Dragster is designed to give paying guests an exhilarating blast down the drag strip.
