Dave McClelland and I were teamed as co-hosts for a number of episodes of the old HOT ROD Magazine TV, back when SPEED TV was still Speed Vision. I had known of Dave – and his booming voice – since hearing him announce NHRA drag races on the ABC Wide World of Sports TV show as a kid. Like Garlits, I never dreamed I’d be working with him later in life. Here, I’m getting his thoughts during an event at the NHRA Museum of Drag Racing in Pomona. Dave is a truly generous man on camera. He went out of his way to give me equal time – and weight – during our work together. He also owns a 1970 Buick GS455 ragtop…yep it’s a factory Stage 1, four-speeder too!
