Automotive Industry Legend Vic Edelbrock Jr. Passes Away

It is with great sadness that today, we must announce the passing of a legend. When it comes to the performance aftermarket, the Edelbrock nameplate is one that you most certainly are going to recognize and because of that impact on the racing community, Vic Edelbrock Jr. became one of the greatest.

At just 26-years-old, Edelbrock’s father, Vic Sr., passed away and left the company to his son where he would take the company bearing just ten employees and grow it to become one of the biggest names in the business, pumping out quality parts for applications far and wide.

While there are some folks who you wish you could just hang on to forever, everyone has their day and after complications from a cold, the world lost a legend at age 80. Our condolences go to the friends and family of Mr. Edelbrock Jr. and we would like to put forward just how grateful we alongside others in the industry have been to have such figures like himself leading the charge that we’re all invested in.
