Twenty-five years ago, Larry Dixon won the National Hot Rod Assn.'s Winternationals top-fuel drag racing championship at the County Fairgrounds in Pomona. On the victory stand, Dixon held the trophy with one hand and his 3-year-old son, Larry Jr., with the other. This week, Larry Jr. is making his professional drag racing debut in the same event on the same drag strip, driving for Don (Snake) Prudhomme, a five-time Winternationals winner who retired last year. But it almost didn't happen.
