In the age when men were climbing into rockets to blast up into the sky, he strapped into a rocket and ripped across salt flats at record speeds.

I grew with a father who loved to tell me stories about Sir Sterling Moss, AJ Foyt, Junior Johnson and Craig Breedlove. Equally fond of all of them. Just a completely different time.

There is a great and fascinating interview with Breedlove from a couple of years ago in Motorsport Mag in which he outlines his story and career history in detail. Here:https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/a...aig-breedlove/

Edit: Worth mentioning he was 82 when he gave the interview but clearly still fit, not to mention keen.

Craig Breedlove has given us a choice. Either a smart restaurant in a vinery, or Hozy’s, a cheap and cheerful eatery. “Hozy’s,” explains Breedlove, “is where all the local racers go to hang out and eat.” Clearly there is no real choice here.

Hozy’s is in Santa Paula, a 20-minute drive from Breedlove’s beautiful waterfront home in Oxnard, California. He’s got a place in Mexico and a workshop in Rio Vista in Northern California. Breedlove and his wife Yadira have driven up from Mexico to meet us. They have a dog, so air travel is avoided. Breedlove, 82, looks well after the three-day drive in his Toyota pick-up.
