SEASON 4 REWIND - LEGENDS: THE SERIES - THE LEGEND OF AL SEGRINI

 

Al Segrini made the most of his short time racing in the NHRA. In fact, in his short career (1974-1984), he ran less than 60 total NHRA tour events. Nevertheless, he won five times, three times in the season-opening Winternationals, and his impact on the sport of drag racing is inescapable.

A protégé of the late, great “Jungle Jim” Liberman, for whom he once worked as a volunteer crew member, cleaning parts and steering the race car back to the pits, Segrini got his start driving the “Boston Shaker” Funny Car for a recovering Kosty Ivanof, who would introduce him to one of the individuals who would change his life, Jim Beattie, the founder of ATI.

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.

SEASON FOUR REWIND - 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.

FROM THE ARCHIVES: THE GET WELL DARRELL VIDEO

In 1990 NHRA filmed a get well message for Darrell Gwynn from all the racers in Atlanta following his accident at Santa Pod. The pit spot that Darrell was supposed to be in was used as Get Well Soon ground zero with Sheryl Bernstein, Lynne Prudhomme, Joyce Schultz and others leading the way.

This lengthy video is a reminder of just how tough his accident hit the racing community, and the list of members within our racing fraternity who are no longer with us.

By his own admission, Mark Pawuk was burned out with Pro Stock and believed he had worn out his welcome when he walked away from driving a decade ago. He's still not a fan of the Pro Stock life, but the successful businessman has fallen head over heels in love with the Factory Stock Showdown. Pawuk returned to competition this season, albeit in a sportsman division, and is having the time of his life. In this video feature, Pawuk talks about rekindling his love for competing in the straight-line sport.
