There's only one name for a team like that: Sox & Martin. Teaming up in the early '60s, the All-American duo of Buddy Martin and Ronnie Sox flat out dominated the match-race scene and became the winningest Pro-Stock team of their era. The adage Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday was widely recognized by automobile manufacturers and Sox & Martins' success on the track lead to a partnership with Chrysler. With factory support directly from Chrysler, Sox & Martin played a critical role in boosting the potential of new car sales that drag racing represented by hosting Performance Clinics in the towns near where they raced. Theses tech sessions held at dealerships across the country allowed car guys a chance to meet and talk with team members and ultimately get answers to help them with their rides.
