vandergriffIs Bob Vandergriff sentimental? “No. I never have been,” said the owner-driver who will be shortening his title to just “owner” after this weekend. He said he and wife Marissa share the trait. “Always for us, it’s like on to the next thing. When it’s over, it’s over, and then we’re going to move on to the next thing. It’s just the way I’ve always been.”

He said his collection of memorabilia is virtually non-existent. “A lot of guys collect stuff over their years of driving. I don’t have anything left. I don’t have firesuits and helmets and all that stuff that I’ve collected over the years. I don’t have any of that. I’ve just never been that way,” he said.

Of course, Vandergriff said he wanted to end his career “with a trophy in my hand.” However, he said, “I’ve had a good career out here. It’s been 20 years. Made a living at it. Didn’t have to get a real job. Been able to take care of my family. So it’s been good. I always would have liked to have done better, you know? But it’s one of those things it didn’t line up like some other teams have done – like 60 wins with Larry Dixon has or 70 like Schumacher has. I’m not complaining. I’ve had a good career.”

Written by Bobby Bennett; Photo by Roger Richards.

 

 

Former Funny Car racer turned crew chief Jim Head has a good handle on tuning a nitro engine, but the special medical box attached to his hip is another challenge.

"This line puts the antibiotics in," Head explained, pointing to the plastic line feeding a clear fluid into a medical boot on his right foot. "Two hours before I put them in my body I have to get them out of the refrigerator. Every six hours, that means and were talking the middle of the night. If you didn't have a smart phone, this isn't doable."

cokerWhen Harold Coker opened Coker Tire Company in 1958, he was hopeful that his business would succeed.

On Sunday November 16, 2014, Harold Coker passed away, leaving behind a loving family, countless friends and a remarkable legacy.

Hardly living an average life, Harold Coker’s impact affected not only his hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee, but also contributed to the lives and success of many people around the world. In his faith, family, through collector cars, politics and in his business dealings—Coker led by example, leaving a lasting impression on the lives of many through the years.

Written by CompetitionPlus.TV.

 

Tommy Johnson playfully said Friday evening during the NHRA AAA Finals in Pomona, Ca. that he was happy because he has a job lined up for next year, then said, “I didn’t say what it is.” His bosses told everybody Saturday. Don Schumacher and Terry Chandler announced they will repeat their campaign in 2015 with the Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger, and Johnson will return as driver to represent both DSR and the charitable foundation that grants the wishes of children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.

Chandler funds the DSR team that raises awareness for the non-profit organization by donating branding to Make-A-Wish on the race car, team transporters, and uniforms and hosts hundreds of Make-A-Wish kids and their families at NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series' 24 events throughout the country. Chandler fully funds the John Collins-led team. Make-A-Wish does not contribute any funds to the racing operation.
