I remember reading about Art Arfons and Craig Breedlove when they were both trying to outdo one another running on the Salt Flats. Those guys were crazy. I also visited Arfon’s shop outside of Akron, I think. I also believe racing was in his son’s blood as well.Hah! I found a link to an article!
There was a racing shop where my cousin lived in Chardon, Ohio. The owner was Ron Hutter. I never seen a motor shop so clean as Hutter’s. He built engines for both NASCAR drivers and drag racers.
There’s a fellow that lives just north of me that was and still is in the racing business. Bruce Larson has built something like an 4000 horsepower engine. Maybe I have a picture. Let me look.
