Herb Rodgers Passes



Legendary Canadian drag racer Herbie 'Go-Fast' Rodgers passed away recently after complications from a long and courageous battle with cancer. Rodgers campaigned the 'Flying Glass' Alcohol Funny Car for many years with a great deal of success, the most notable being the big win at the IHRA Empire Nationals in New York in 1993.

Rodgers was also invited by NHRA to attend the Suzuka circuit in Japan in the mid-1990's as a Canadian competitor. Rodgers's last runs were at the Featherlite Can-Am Nationals at St. Thomas Dragway last June 29 & 30 where he recorded two six second passes at over 200mph.

Rodgers is survived by long-time wife and best friend 'Toots' (real name Elaine) and daughters Jackie and Stacey. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Logan Chapel at 371 Dundas St. in London. Visitation will be held Monday from 2 - 4 and 7 - 9 with the funeral Tuesday at 11.00am.
