There was no formal training for the job, but this didn't prevent Steve Gibbs from doing the best he could. 

Originally hired as an ad salesman for the NHRA, Gibbs was recruited by the late Jack Hart to help run the NHRA events. Gibbs faced everything from the inspirational to absurd during his tenure as "the man" making the decisions for the NHRA. Gibbs believes a good measure of his qualification was in having "good, walking around sense."

In this final episode of Season One - Legends: The Series, Gibbs discusses why he got into the NHRA administrative circle. He admitted his close relationship with the drag racers and the one who "hauled off, and belted me." Gibbs also addressed M-80s and Nitro, as well as the death of drivers. 

This inspirational interview serves as a fitting conclusion to an incredible series debut.
