Yep, there was snow at Pomona that year. Really rare in SoCal. When I was a kid, we lived in Roscoe, Calif. What? Yeah, what is now the San Fernando valley, & it snowed one year, enough to make a snowman. It does snow here in Phoenix once in a blue moon, lasts 15 min & that's it. If you want snow in Arizona, go to Flagstaff & you get plenty. BTW, I am banned from wearing shorts because my ugly white legs blind people.
I thought they banned Larry. Not Traxxas. So why would it matter if Traxxas wanted to sponsor someone? They didn't get banned AFAIK. Dixon did.
The NHRA imposed an indefinite suspension of competition privileges against Larry Dixon for violating NHRA rules, particularly Section 1.3.1 Participant Conduct and 1.6.3 Chassis Inspection of the 2017 NHRA Rulebook. NHRA Tech Department discovered the use of a NHRA chassis tag on an unauthorized and unapproved two seat dragster
“Any further incidents could result in further action. Larry can appeal the decision, per the 2017 NHRA Rulebook.”
From 1971, when they banned advertising of tobacco on TV to 1998, when they placed a ban on tobacco companies sponsoring sporting events, I'm sure tobacco companies sponsored multiple events. Or else they wouldn't have specifically banned sponsorship of sporting events by tobacco companies 27 years later. No?
