Larry "Spiderman" McBride is the elder statesman of Top Fuel motorcycle drag racing. Partnered with brother Steve, the McBrides have been racing supercharged, nitro-burning motorcycles for over 30 years.

McBride has left his mark on the sport. He was the first rider to run under the 6.50 second elapsed time barrier, setting the record of 6.49-seconds in 1991 - a mark which could not be broken for three years. He also garnered the 1991 AMA/Prostar Top Fuel Championship.

The McBride brothers operate Cycle Specialists in Newport News, Virginia, a performance motorcycle shop. In addition to Harley-Davidsons and import "hop ups", they specialize in preparing Yamaha FJ-1200 engines for the legends race car series.

McBride received the "Spiderman" moniker in 1980 at the NHRA U.S. Nationals when an announcer commented on his trademark riding style of "crawling" around on the bike to keep it in the groove.
