Amanda Busick The emotions at the top end are already high, and through tears Chris said 'It's been 63 years of fun.' What has drag racing meant to your life?

Chris Karamesines It's been my life. Not only that, the fans, I love the fans. They treated me real well. Especially my sponsors. Bob Stange and his family [Strange Engineering], [Don] Schumacher, and Lucas they did great. And without them, I couldn't have raced.

Amanda Busick Thank you for your years of racing.

Chris Karamesines Thank you, appreciate it.

Brian Lohnes Incredible guy and incredible life and incredible career.
