DREAMS AND EMOTIONS

 

John Lombardo Jr. is the son of renowned Funny Car driver Lil' John Lombardo, a successful privateer whose most widely publicized victory was a 1985 win at the U.S. Nationals in Raymond Beadle's Blue Max Mustang.

The younger Lombardo was heavily influenced by summers spent drag racing with his dad and surrounded by some of the greatest drivers in racing. He also successfully developed a string of auto parts stores that he eventually combined to form one of the largest-inventory of NAPA outlets in California. When circumstances were right, the Brea, California-based businessman began driving an NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car, proudly flying the NAPA colors.
