My dad is receiving a Wally tomorrow,and I’ll be heading to Bowling Green for the ceremony.
Most of my friends know that I’m a car nut. Some don’t know that it’s all because of my dad, who used to build Top Fuel dragsters and funny cars. I grew up around that stuff, and it seems there was always a car project for us to work on.
He’s being awarded a Wally, which is an award named after Wally Parks, and it is NHRA’s most prestigious trophy.
I’m super proud, and excited for him to receive this recognition. My Dad is on the left pushing the car in this picture which I believe was his first dragster. He recently restored the Frakes car which he has on display in Bowling Green. I’ll post some pictures when I get down there.
