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.

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!
