He may be as old as 93, no one really knows how old Chris Karamesines really is, but he most likely is the oldest person ever to pilot an NHRA top fuel dragster. After returning from a tour in Europe during World War II, Karamesines began auto racing in the early 1950s. He finally retired after the 2020 season, and had his granddaughter, Krista Baldwin take over driving duties. In between, Karamesines wo countless rounds of NHRA competition, but never a national event win.
I mailed to Karamesines on April 4 and got the card back on April 12, for an 8-day TAT.
Wow, raced til at least his late 80's?
