GRAND MAR­SHALL:

Hot Rod Deluxe - - Roddin’ Scene -

Larry Lom­bardo was the 2018 HRR Grand Mar­shall, and this ’61 Corvette is the car that started it all. Lom­bardo was drag rac­ing this car be­fore he had a le­gal driver li­cense. In 1968, at just 19 years old, he went to the Na­tion­als and be­came F/S Na­tional Champ, and went on to win Na­tional Stock Elim­i­na­tor, beat­ing out Dave Duell and the famed Drag-n-wagon in the fi­nal round. The car was built in his dad’s Amoco Ser­vice Sta­tion, Joe’s Amoco, with the en­gine by Roger Sin­istri and tun­ing by Joe Lom­bardo. Larry’s col­or­ful rac­ing ca­reer in­cludes driv­ing for Bill Jenk­ins and open­ing his own race en­gine shop, to men­tion a just a few.
