Jim Nelson...

A few words from Steve Gibbs...
"We lost another Hall of Fame drag racer this morning. Jim Nelson…of Dragmaster fame passed away after a lengthy illness. Jim did it all…driver…builder…official….safety worker…it was his life. I was fortunate enough to have Jim as on my Safety Safari crew for many years.

He and partner Dode Martin left their fingerprints all over this sport. Luckily, Dode continues to do so.

Our condolences and respect to Jim’s widow, Martha, and sons Shan and Dirk."

One of my first model car projects was a Dragmaster with a front-mounted blower on an SBC. Thanks, Jim. You improved the sport and your legacy will thrive forever. Rest in peace. WC1
