Dick Harrell was a drag racing pioneer and all-around good guy who made profound contributions to muscle car culture. While he was still very young, Harrell was successfully racing sprint cars across the Southwest.

By the early 1960s he was a racing champion, setting records left and right using Chevrolet cars that he had substantially modified.
