Farewell to Dick LaHaie- Top Fuel's "Ironman"
Wed, 12 Dec 2018, 08:27 AM ~ By Steve Reyes

Top Fuel racing`s quintessential ``tough`` guy has left us after a prolific career. The guy that could do it all in top fuel; build, tune and drive, passed away on December 5, 2018 at the age of seventy-six.

The Michigan native won championships as a driver but also tuned Scott Kalitta and Larry Dixon to a combined four top fuel championships. LaHaie`s road to success started at the early age of thirteen with a 1948 Mercury Coupe that he purchased with money he had saved up over a period of three years.
