In a pro career spanning just 10 full seasons, five in Top Fuel and five in Funny Car, the native Californian won 37 NHRA tour events, three Bud Shootouts and four championships while endearing himself to friends, fans and rivals away from the track with an offbeat sense of humor.

When he won the 2005 NHRA Funny Car title, he became just the second driver in history to hoist the championship hardware in both fuel categories.

LEGENDS: THE SERIES - THE LEGEND OF AL SEGRINI

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.

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.
