SEASON 3, LEGENDS: THE SERIES - THE LEGEND OF DAVE MCCLELLAND

In as much as actor Morgan Freeman's voice epitomizes the perceived voice of God, there's no perceiving when it comes to the voice of drag racing.

No single voice has been more closely associated with NHRA Championship Drag Racing than that of Dave McClelland. For 42 years (1961-2003), “Big Mac” announced NHRA events, served as TV host on TNN, cut TV and radio commercials and served as emcee at countless NHRA functions from banquets to press conferences.

CPTV FEATURE - DEAN AND ALESIA HARRIS AND THEIR GHOSTLY GASSER

The Southeast Gassers Association (SGA), drag racing's strictest period-correct Gasser series, has more than colorful and entertaining cars. The cars, in fact, almost pale in comparison to the driver's who pilot these crude replicas of drag racing history. In this video, you'll meet Dean and Alesia Harris' and their '65 Chevy II Gasser. A former street racer, Harris has found a home with the Southeast Gassers Association. This is quite the entertaining video.

STORYTELLERS AT CPTV - LOUIS FORCE TELLS THE STORY OF "WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE'RE IN MEXICO?"

As kids growing up, there was no more of a tighter bond than Louis Force and his adventurous little brother John Force.

In this episode of Storytellers, Louis and John, early in their drag racing careers decide to head east out to the NHRA Gatornationals. Louis usually did all of the driving pulling their Chaparral trailer, but on the cross-country return home; the eldest of the siblings made the unwise decision to hand over the driving chores to John somewhere in Texas so he could grab some sleep.

What happened next when Louis woke up is a story worth telling, especially when John had taken a wrong turn and landed the Brute Force Funny Car team in Mexico.

ENCORE VIDEO - THE LATE MARK LYLE EXPLAINING FOUR-WIDE STAGING PROCESS

Former NHRA starter Mark Lyle was a man's man, the kind of race official who envisioned the big picture of drag racing accordingly. The drag racing community endured a huge loss when on Sunday, March 27, 2016, Lyle died in what has been described as giving his life to save another.

In going through our archives, we happened across this Les Mayhew video feature from the 2015 NHRA 4-Wide Nationals in Charlotte, NC. After a long and trying day of qualifying, Lyle took the time out from his personal time to explain the intracacies of the complex staging process. This was the kind of person Lyle was. 

STORYTELLERS AT CPTV - DAVE MCCLELLAND TELLS THE STORY OF 'LOOK OUT STEVE'

In this latest episode of Storytellers at CompetitionPlus.tv, the Golden Voice of the NHRA Dave McClelland reveals if he hadn't picked up the microphone to earn a living he'd likely have been a professional drag racer. However, if you had asked the late Steve Evans about one particular day in Bakersfield, he would have likely said "Big Mac" wasn't ready for primetime.
