Bob Labbete Passes
the Albuqurque track owner passed away Monday April 14th.

Here is an old photo of Albuquerque National Dragway that David Campos sent over to SWD. Bob Labbate re-did this track and renovated it over the past 30 years to what it is now. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. We'll miss you Bob.

LABBATE -- Robert Labbate, 64, passed away on Monday April 14, 2008, in Albuquerque, NM. He was born on January 6, 1944, in Brooklyn, NY, to Frank and Louise Labbate. He is survived by his loving wife, Theresa; daughter, Kim Labbate and fiance, Anthony Dickson; son, Mike Labbate and his wife, Becky; three grandchildren, Lauren, Ryan, and Nicole; and one brother, Frank Labbate. Robert was a lifetime member of the Catholic Church and is the owner and operator of Albuquerque National Drag Way & Pizza Castle. He will be dearly missed by his loving family and friends -

Frank Powers runs 10.62 @ 127.05 - fastest pass
so far at the new track as rubber gets laid down
