A 250mph Vega Featured at Cordova Drag’s Summer Nationals [interview]

Bruce Litton drives fast for a living. I had a fuel-burning nitro-powered convo with the man today ahead of his Cordova Summer Nationals appearance this weekend.
Some great quotes in this YouTube audio from Bruce, who is a legendary driver on the IHRA circuit. He says he liked Vegas when he was a kid. I mentioned, for some reason, I liked those little bubble cars from Honda. The first incarnation of the Civic. Never did I imaging hitting speeds that Bruce churns out every weekend on The Tour.
Check out the interview:

Major props to the guys at Cordova for giving KRNA Race Fans all those free tickets over the last few weeks.
Enjoy the high-speed action!
