Hot Rod Deluxe - - Roddin’ Scene -

FAREWELL: Brett Henry, who trav­eled 1,200 miles from Wi­chita, Kansas, twice each year to chal­lenge the world’s best tra­di­tional AA/ Fuel Al­tereds, was se­ri­ously in­jured Satur­day and died the next day. Top-end wit­nesses told us that the 50-year-old vet­eran com­pleted the run nor­mally, popped the ’chute, and ap­peared to shut his nitro-burn­ing Chevy off, mo­men­tar­ily. The al­tered then ac­cel­er­ated through the shut­down area and into the wall be­fore strik­ing a berm along the prop­erty’s bor­der. Pho­tog­ra­pher Kleet Nor­ris cap­tured the pop­u­lar racer’s fi­nal burnout.
