RACER SPOTLIGHT: LARRY LANCASTER
Larry Lancaster has always been quite the innovator and trailblazer for quite a variety of mechanical things. In drag racing, he has designed and built a number of very nice rides. The interesting thing about his truck is that it’s set a world record on the Bonneville Salt Flats with one motor (a small cubic inch combination) and then crosses over and runs the quarter-mile with yet a whole different set-up (as in big displacement), capable of running in the 10-second zone. Larry was out testing during the Spring Warm Up & Swap Meet and after a couple of shake down runs, the pickup really ran strong, including a pass or two with carrying the front wheels in the air. Larry is joined by his wife, Sharlene, at many events. She competes with a mid-11 second Model A coupe that is run in several categories.
