    Actually I believe he swore not to shave the beard until he went into the sixes.

    He did it bigtime because he didn't put together a six second pass until the final... then it was the second quickest EVER... AND he won the event with it!

    Jerry, Not the picture. I'm pretty sure I was on the other side opposite this shot. I may have that magazine around here somewhere! {:-)

    Was a good show. Tom "Mongoose" McEwen and Don "Snake" Prudohme (spelling??) it was great to hear their stories!

    And Bob Glidden too!

    I agree! A lot more history included in the coverage this year. I think the race deserves to be treated this way. It is the "grand-daddy" of drag race events!
