GENE MOONEYHAM, DRAG RACING PIONEER, DEAD AT 75

Drag racing pioneer Gene Mooneyham died recently at a 
Placentia, Calif., hospital at age 75, The Los Angeles Times 
reported Tuesday. Mooneyham, who was a racer, designer, 
builder, chief mechanic and a businessman, played a major 
role in the careers of many big-name drag racers, including 
"Big Daddy" Don Garlits and John Force. He got his start 
racing hot rods on dry lakebeds when enthusiasts converged 
on dusty drag strips in the sport's formative years, the 
report said. His work with superchargers made him one of the 
sport's most influential people. Mooneyham received a Life-
time Achievement Award in 1996 from the National Hot Rod 
Association, which oversees most drag racing in America.
He retired from racing in the 1950s after a crash in San 
Diego, but his car continued to win with driver Larry Faust.
