Herb McCandless – Drag Racing Living History: Part 3

We hope you’re enjoying watching our drag racing living history video series – ‘Born to Win – A Documentary on the Life of Herb McCandless.’ In episode three, Herb talks about the breaking up of Sox & Martin due to NHRA’s new rules, the economic climate of the mid-1970s, and its impact on the nation. Herb takes up driving part-time for other drag racing legends and uses what racing has taught him to pivot into opening a family operated, high-performance parts business. Herb also becomes a Direct Connection distributor, and with his driving talents, is a natural for testing new Direct Connection parts for Chrysler Engineers. With Herb’s great people skills and his natural engineering smarts, he and his family grow McCandless Performance Parts into one of the largest Mopar® automotive supply businesses in the country. But enough of us telling you all this, hear it first-hand from the man himself!
