Richard Montiel, driver of the "Top Dog" Top Alcohol Dragster, passed away Wednesday night October 22. Richard was an accomplished sand drag racer, who broke many records along the way including being the first racer to break the 2 second barrier in a Buggy and the first Top Alcohol racer into the 2.4 second zone. Richard's monumental 2.49 E.T. Top Alcohol pass in September 2004 stood as the record for nearly four years. NSDN extends its condolences to the Montiel family and the Top Dog crew. Richard will be greatly missed by the sand drag racing community.
