Dixon back behind the wheel for BVR in Norwalk
Wednesday, July 02, 2014


Bob Vandergriff Racing will return to a two-dragster team at the 2014 Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk with three-time NHRA world champion Larry Dixon driving the Total Equipment/Casedhole Top Fuel dragster.

“It'll be great to see the Total Equipment And Service car and Larry Dixon back on the track,” said Vandergriff. “It’s always a big help to have a second team out there and after the way that team ran in their last outing, we expect them to come out and compete for a win.”

Dixon has 62 career win in 108 final rounds in his career. He previously took the seat of the second BVR Top Fuel Dragster at the NHRA SpringNationals in Houston earlier this year.

"I'm really excited to get back in the Total Equipment/Casedhole car,” said Dixon. “Crew chief Mike Guger had the car running great in Houston. I want to keep that momentum going. I've had a few good Sundays in Norwalk over the years and maybe some of that mojo will carry over. I appreciate the opportunity that Bob and C&J Energy gave me to drive their car. Hopefully with us running eight of the next 12 events, we’ll get Bob a solid spot in the Top 10 and the Mello Yello Countdown To The Championship."
