Tommy Auger

From John Hanson:

“Tommy Auger, a long time Vincent drag racer, has lost his long running battle with cancer.  I was fortunate to become friends with him after Dick Busby told me the Lightning I was restoring was the one Tommy rode to so many wins.  Even with throat cancer we learned to communicate all things ‘Vincent’ and drag racing.  He was a great inspiration and will be missed. RIP Tommy”


Here is a picture of Tommy on the restored Black Lightning, taken at the 2006 NHRA Hot Rod Reunion, where Tommy was the “Golden Age” award recipient.
