Bob had a dinosaur to work with in the BOSS 429 at the beginning of the 500 inch era. But once he convinced Ford to get off their ass and get him some better heads, he became the "Man".Didn't Shepard win an IHRA & NHRA Pro Stock Title in the same year once or twice? I know that their IHRA program gave them the "headstart" to when NHRA opened competition on the 500cid rule.
Yep. The Texas trio owned IHRA & NHRA Pro stock for a few years.
You have to think....what would Glidden have done if that Texas Trio with the Camaro never showed up to take 4 consecutive Titles and where would Pro Stock be if Glidden never came along....
