Hurricane Can’t Stop IHRA Hot Rod Points Leader

One of the worst natural disasters in American history couldn’t keep James McPherson Jr. from the race track.

The longtime resident of New Orleans was one of the victims when the Category 5 Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. The storm surge caused multiple failures of the levees holding back Lake Pontchartrain, and left a huge portion of the city underwater. McPherson’s house was among the areas flooded, and he remembers Katrina as leaving behind 13 feet of water and a desolate area in its aftermath.
