A Tribute To Vic Edelbrock Jr., An Industry Legend
June 15th, 2017
Over the weekend, Vic Edelbrock Jr., one of the greatest icons in the aftermarket industry, past president of SEMA, and leader of Edelbrock Company for almost 60 years passed away.
He was born into racing as the son of Vic Edelbrock Sr., who was one of the founders of hot rodding and speed equipment in aftermarket products. And although he could have chosen any career, he was drawn into hot rodding and performance just like his dad. The PowerNation team sends their condolences to the Edelbrock family and friends.
Starting at 9am this Sunday, in Xtreme Off Road Ian trail tests a Jeep JK before and after a round of upgrades.
Then this 1963 Chevy C10 is Katie’s featured ride on PowerNation. She’ll be joined by one of the builders on the project, Nick Roberts from Nichols Paint & Fab. The owners gave the team a truck in decent shape and after a yearlong build this is what they did. Everything has been handmade from the inner fenders to the unique front end that held four headlights and now has just two with Harley Day Markers. It’s got a 5.3 liter making about 400 horsepower. Plus Marc drops by to talk about the Power Stop Ultimate Mustang he and Tommy are creating with drift champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr. And this is a pony car you can enter to win on our website. It’s a full block so make sure you join us.
