Last year George Gooch was given credit for helping make Top Fuel history at the Man Cup / NHDRO Pingel Thunder Nationals. This great shot was taken of Mr. Gooch prior to a massive engine explosion that caused a series of events that allowed Chris Hand to run his first 5 second pass. (The Hand of Fate) Because of this engine explosion, George was not able to make it back to race on Sunday.
George is a feared rider that has made ‘too many to count’ final round appearances in his career along with many record breaking runs. Good Luck to George and his crew in 2014.
