Warren Johnson won 97 national events and six championships at the wheel of a series of Chevrolets and Oldsmobiles during the golden age of NHRA Pro Stock racing. Yet, even though he has hoisted more NHRA trophies than any pro racer with the exception of John Force, he never fancied himself a driver.
In this episode of Legends, the Series, season four, WJ gets candid about his career and those who helped shape it, from Dr. Zook to Bob Glidden, talks about being “vertically challenged” and explains his simple philosophy of life.

If you want a good time, call Gary Scelzi. Throughout his time in drag racing, there were few drivers more animated than Scelzi, the multi-time NHRA champion. And, as in most stories, the wildest situations often included alcohol. Although this story didn't transpire because of alcohol, Scelzi did find himself in a crappy situation.

Most every drag racing fan will proclaim "Big Daddy" Don Garlits as the greatest drag racer who ever strapped himself into a dragster. But mention it to Garlits, and he will say he never liked being branded this. Instead, he offers, "I'm just me."
Garlits, the man who advanced safety in the Top Fuel division further than anyone, learned how to drag race by growing up in a family affected by the great depression. He carried the banner in a male-dominated sport and when a talented female driver made her way into the ranks, did his best to win one for the boys all the time.
In this Legends: The Series, Garlits discusses his upbringing, as well as the occupation he nearly had before being led into cars. He'll also discuss his proudest moments as well as a couple of racing fatalities that touched his heart deeply. Garlits also revealed his complicated relationship with Wally Parks and how the love of his family fueled his success.

Tony Christian is many things but shy isn't one of them. The former Modified eliminator icon who stepped up to NHRA Pro Stock before making the move into the Pro Street world, has enjoyed a colorful drag racing career.
Christian didn't win as many races as Bob Glidden or Lee Shepherd, but during his time he stood toe to toe with them. From Pro Stock, Christian came over into the Pro Street movement where he was one of the pioneering icons in the world's fastest street movement.
Christian leads a much easier life these days as a crew chief on Dan Stevenson's Pro Modified entry. In this latest instalment of Legends: The Series, Christian discusses the good old days of gear-jamming Modifieds and the days when he held his own against the giants of NHRA Pro Stock.
