Most Great Racers recognize Chad Nelson and his yellow Model A boattail speedster, and if you have been following the Great Race blog for any length of time you know that Chad is building a new Model A speedster for the 2013 event. And most of you probably know that Chad started in the Great Race as a X-Cup team member. After that, he was so hooked on the Great Race that he competed as a private entry. Then he went back to his hooks and put together his own X-Cup team as a mentor to the youth in his hometown in Florida.
The Historic Vehicle Association documented Chad’s story in an episode of “This Car Matters” from the 2012 Great Race, and it was so well done that we wanted to share it with you.
