TRIBUTE TO A FRIEND AND ASSOCIATE
We have had the privilege
of being associated with Karl E. Nishwitz for
sixty plus years in various forms. As a personal
friend and a drag racing associate for so many
years. We recently lost Karl, who was 84 and
never once in our years did he ever waver from
his dedication and support of the many endeavors
that we challenged together.
Karl was a diligent
supporter of NHRA drag racing and the nostalgia
drag racing community. An unassuming person who
never let self importance get in the way of the
task at hand. He was always at your beckon call
and you always knew where he stood. 100% with
us. We will miss him for his genuine friendship
and dedication to our performance heritage
cause. He had these qualities that were earned
and that are very hard to see on display today.
The nostalgia drag racing community is a much
better place today because of his contributions
and we are all much better for it!
Darwin Doll, National
Nostalgia Drag Racing Association.
