Now, I’ve heard of a lot of seniors continuing to do the things they love, defying the odds both physically and mentally. Take Bowling Green native Duncan Hines, for example. He didn’t begin endorsing products, the thing that continues to make him a household name today, until he was 70. But check this out… the Grand Marshal of this year’s 8th Annual Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion is 81 years old and still races his 7,000-horsepower Top Fuel Dragster! Read all about Chris “The Greek” Karamesines here on the NHRA Motorsports Museum’s website.

The NHRA Reunion returns to the historic stands at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green this Father’s Day Weekend, June 18-20. Purchase your three-day spectator credentials including a pit pass for just $55 by calling 1-800-884-NHRA (6472) or on the NHRA Museum’s website here. Individual day passes will be available at the event. It should be a perfect weekend for the kids to test the waters of the huge Splash Lagoon waterpark expansion next door while dad is wandering among thousands of hot rods!
