Larry Larson has the right vehicle, the proven skill, and now has the stage set to attempt to regain the title as having the Fastest Street Car during the Menards NHRA Heartland Nationals presented by Minties in Topeka, Kan.
The record attempt will take place on Friday, June 7. Larson will make three attempts throughout the afternoon and evening to set new records in front of the fans. Jeff Lutz holds the current marks at 5.85, 251.34 mph.
The record-setting attempts will be made in Larson’s Chevy S-10, which is a street-legal vehicle and has been a multiple time winner on the Street Outlaws circuit. His Chevy S-10 was also the first street legal vehicle to break the five-second barrier. With Larson at the wheel, the vehicle has competed in Drag Week, and won an NHRA race, which previously took place at Heartland Motorsports Park.
Fans attending Friday, June 7 will get to see Larson make three attempts at the record with planned runs at 2:30, 4:30, and 7:45 p.m. on the track.
