BRUCE LITTON’S TOP FUEL RETURN

Torco Racing Fuels Top Fuel competitor Bruce Litton has announced he will return to competition this weekend, October 20 – 22, at Rockingham Dragway for the Universal Technical Institute World Finals. Litton missed the last two races while recovering from injuries sustained during the IHRA race in Epping, N.H, the first races he’s missed in nearly fifteen years.

Litton and his team are positive heading into the race. The first goal is to get the dragster down the track, then qualify.

“We obviously have expectations to qualify and be competitive this weekend, but the first thing to do is get the car down the track and see what happens,” said Litton. “This is last year’s car with a fresh front half on it. I crashed on September 10 and my team started building the new car September 14. There are still a few things we have to finish up when we get there.”

A veteran driver from Indianapolis, Ind., Litton’s passion for the sport has motivated him to return for the final race of the season. He’s not nervous because he doesn’t remember his crash from a month ago.

“I don’t remember the crash. I have evidence of it, but I don’t remember it,” said Litton. “We love doing this. It’s something we’ve done for a long time. I have two great sponsors with Lucas Oil and Torco Racing Fuels. I don’t want to end the season without giving it another shot at Rockingham.”
