Top Fuel legend, Larry “Spiderman” McBride is poised to entertain race fans with swift and loud nitro runs at this weekend’s Beef O’ Brady’s Thunder Valley Mayhem/Super Chevy Show from Bruton Smith’s spectacular Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN.
McBride seems to be a perfect fit for this speed and adrenaline festival, which features multiple racing categories, Pro Mods, monster trucks, freestyle motocross and a huge fireworks display. The event is very similar to the Norwalk Night Under Fire McBride participated in last month, where Spiderman was one of the most popular attractions. McBride signed autographs for hours and fans cleaned him out of more than 3,000 hero cards. An equally enthusiastic crowd is expected in Bristol.
McBride also plans to continue testing his new parachute after a successful debut in Norwalk.
Thunder Valley Mayhem exhibition runs take place at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Saturday
McBride thanked sponsors; Pingel Enterprise, Trim-Tex Drywall Products, Drag Specialties-Parts Unlimited, Red Line Synthetic Oil Corporation, K&N Air Filters and Web-Cam as well as his other sponsors.
