Pomona Raceway mainstay Liming dies
Reprinted from the Sept. 12, 1997 issue of National DRAGSTER
Denver "Dude" Liming, a fixture over the years at fabled Pomona Raceway in Southern California, died Sept. 6. He was 63.
Liming, a resident of nearby Claremont, became Pomona Raceway's superintendent in 1983 after working at the facility since it was built in the 1950s. He also was a member of the original Pomona Timing Association and worked at every NHRA national event at the track since the inaugural Winternationals in 1961. A memorial service was held Sept. 11 at the Ralph Hinds Pavilion at Fairplex.
Liming, who retired as a Pomona Police lieutenant in 1979, is survived by his wife, Sandy, and sons, Doug and Danny.
