    Bruce Larson is one of the racers to have made it through drag racing's turbulent 60s and 70s while still remaining a gentleman and a class act... His history in the sport is one that's produced substantial success for every decade he's participated... Thanks to everyone who has posted up pics from his 2011 "USA-1 Dragfest"... I love the shot of Rocky Pirrone with Freddy Bear and Bill Ellershaw... I've known Rocky since this whole northeastern nostalgia drag racing craze revived itself and picked itself up from its bootstraps, Rocky's demonstrated unwavering gusto in all the pristine rides he's either restored or recreated... The Nostalgia drag racing scene has much to be proud of as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, and thankfully Bruce Larson provides a venue for this genre to collectively celebrate it...

    Rocky Pirrone and yours truly happy as clams over the success of east coast Nostalgia Drag Racing...

    We all should be happy and THANKFUL for how much the nostalgia scene has grown...
