Art Chrisman dies

Noted drag racing and Bonneville pioneer Art Chrisman died early Tuesday morning losing his bout with cancer.

He was also one of the spark plug wizards at Indy and when Ford brought out the all conquering V8 he was an integral part of the Autolight program.

In answer to many inquiries, the Chrisman Family has set Saturday, August 27th, as the date for Art's Memorial, at the NHRA Motorsports Museum, Fairplex, Pomona. Time – 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.

This is a weekend free of conflict with major racing events, as to permit as many fan and friends possible to attend. Further details will be released in coming days.

No other services are planned.
