Spring has sprung and brought with it the start of the 2015 racing season. Returning for another four events at the Auto Club Dragway, in Fontana, California, the NMCA West series brings together the fastest street cars from all over the west coast in an epic battle to take home a real NHRA Wally trophy and other prizes. This season is primed to be one of the most competitive yet after the super close championship in 2014 that saw Ron de Hoop edge out series veterans Steve Cox, Jan Vanderpool, and Mike Nordahl in the final race of the season. This was Ron’s second straight Nostalgia Street Car championship and which painted a big target on his back at the recent season opener. Read the rest of this entry →

To car enthusiasts, your first car was a symbol of freedom. It gave you a way to explore the world beyond how far you could ride your bike and meant you didn’t have to rely on anyone else to get where you wanted to go. It didn’t matter if you had a rusty jalopy that barely ran, a hand-me-down from the parents or an older sibling, or, if you were one of the lucky ones, something that was the envy of all of your friends. Yancey Taylor definitely fits into the latter category as he was fortunate enough to receive a step-side ’66 C10 from his dad as a fifteenth birthday present. Read the rest of this entry →
The 2014 SEMA Show marks Hedman’s 60th Anniversary, and manufacturers like Hedman Hedders are gearing up to bring new products and amazing rides to this year’s show. We will also be taking this time to recognize our memorable past. This incredible milestone leads us to remember and honor, Bob Hedman’s, humble beginnings creating custom headers for fellow racers, including Wally Parks and his famous ’57 Savoy nicknamed “Suddenly”. Bob Hedman’s contribution to Suddenly would help Wally set a number of top speed records, like the one set in Daytona clocked at 166.893 mph.
In the past having a vehicle with a lowered stance meant either choosing a header that performed but was vulnerable to impacts or one that gave you adequate ground clearance at the expense of exhaust flow. With the increasing popularity of the Pro-Touring and Resto-Mod styles, enthusiasts need a header that can deliver both power and ground clearance. But where do you find a header that offers good exhaust flow without primaries that scrape on every speed bump? Enter the Hedman Pro-Touring Mid-Length Header.
