INDIANAPOLIS --

Just days removed from earning his third NHRA Full Throttle Top Fuel world championship, Al-Anabi Racing driver Larry Dixon, along with fellow Top Fuel drivers Antron Brown and Cory McClenathan and Firestone Indy Lights drivers Dan Clarke, Charlie Kimball and Martin Plowman, lent their construction skills to help Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis. During the event, the drivers worked on a home being constructed just north of downtown Indianapolis. The home will be dedicated to Sherry McClure and her family on Dec. 8. McClure and her oldest daughter were there working on the house with the drivers as well. Dixon and McClenathan were charged with helping paint walls on the inside, while Matco Tools driver Brown worked his magic on the power tools outside the home, helping to cut and install siding on the home. Below are quotes from the three Top Fuel drivers on their experience:

LARRY DIXON: "This was my first time ever volunteering for a Habitat home. I can't wait to get involved in the next one. The IMA (Indiana Motorsports Association) asked if I would be interested in helping out, and I am thrilled they did. Great day, but I don't think I will give up my day job."

ANTRON BROWN: "This was a great day. I am working on a new garage for myself, and it was great to meet Sherry and see how much this home is going to mean to her and her kids. We got so much done in just one day and that was because of the total team effort. The other drivers, Habitat staff, IMA, and Indy Partnership all worked together to get a lot accomplished - total team effort!"

CORY McCLENATHAN: "To get to meet Sherry and see how excited she is for this home to be built for her and her family made it special," said McClenathan. "Cold, windy, and it even rained, so it wasn't the nicest of days to work outside. That is why I stayed inside to paint and let Antron climb a ladder and work on the outside of the house."
