Gone but not forgotten. Hard charging, "Man In Black", Al Hofmann passed away on March 20th, 2008. He was 60 years old. His death was as his life, quick and fast. Although it came much too soon, it was the type of passing he would have wanted. His brother in law simply stated: "His body hated retirement."
Al and I had nine wonderful years together. I treasure each and every moment. Although both of us effectively had retired from the drag racing life in 2002, it remained in our heart and soul. When we went home to Florida and built a classic car restoration business we had much time to reflect on the racing days, good, bad and ugly. Our lives ran parallel in the racing world so we had the same stories with two points of view. Interesting, you bet. Who didn't we know, what race didn't we experience, triumphs and tragedies shared, together and separate. Now, it is time to share this with you. I hope you enjoy what this website has to offer.

|The life and times of Al Hofmann|
Al Hofmann is a part of drag racing history that truly needs to be remembered and honored. To quote his friend Bill Stephens:
"Some were quicker, some were faster, and many were prettier.
But not too many were ever tougher."
The "None Tougher" legend lives on.
