Nearly 40 years ago, the Kazanjian & Lemon Funny Cars were some of the top runners on the BB/Funny Car trail. Based out of southern California, the duo of Tom Lemon and Art Kazanjian won both the `74 and `75 Nightfire 500 races at Firebird. They are returning to racing in 2011 with experienced driver/tuner Rian Kono behind the butter fly wheel as the team enters the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series with a new AA/Nitro Funny Car.
