THANKSGIVING VIDEO TREAT - A V-6 RUNS PRO STOCK

Sometimes the best laid plans on paper just don’t jibe with politics.

Buddy Ingersoll of Ziegler, Ill., knows that to be an accurate statement.

A little over 22-years ago, with the blessings of the IHRA’s tech department, Ingersoll began entering Pro Stock events with his turbocharged, 260-inch Buick Regal. This was fine until he leaned on the locals and started running quick in qualifying and even worse, started winning rounds.

Ingersoll reached the final round of the 1986 IHRA Fall Nationals in Bristol, Tenn., and afterwards found himself banished back to NHRA’s Competition eliminator. If it hadn’t been for a burned up clutch in the final round against Pro Stock icon Bob Glidden, he might have been tarred and feathered in the pits.

This classic YouTube video features the ESPN coverage of this event.

LEGENDS: THE SERIES - THE LEGEND OF LARRY DIXON JR.

 

Larry Dixon may not think he’s a legend, but a body of work that includes 62 NHRA tour victories and Top Fuel championships with two different teams in two different decades would suggest otherwise.

Regardless, after beating cancer and emerging unscathed from some of the most spectacular accidents in the sport, the California native still is not ready to hang it up.

CPTV ENCORE - THE EMOTIONAL STORY OF THE MATUSEK FAMILY

 

If there's ever a name which epitomizes the will to succeed, it's Matusek.

The Matusek name, championed in drag racing by master fuel system expert and Pro Modified racer Steve Matusek, is quick to point out the reputation was set in motion long before he was even born.

Matusek's father, the late John Matusek, escaped to the United States to avoid persecution in 1956 from his Hungarian homeland. He was a member of the Hungarian Freedom Fighters who battled the Russian Army as part of the movement against communism. His mother, Lucy Haberman Matusek, who escaped Poland after hiding in an attic for a year to avoid going to a Nazi Germany concentration camp.
