The partnership between Ronnie Sox and Buddy Martin is probably the most famous in NHRA history, but had an interesting start as originally they were competitors. Buddy approached Ronnie to drive for him after being unable to beat him.
Sox & Martin first competed in 1963 in a Chevrolet Impala, before shifting in 1964 to a Mercury Comet. They are more well known from their switch to Plymouth cars, especially the Barracuda and 'Cuda models.
Ronnie was seen as the king of the four speed era, where his power shifting was so fast that when the clutchless transmissions were introduced in 1973 it actually slowed down his shifting times, when all other drivers gained time.
Ronnie became the inaugural champion of the pro stock class.
Chrysler had became so dominant a rule change in 1972 was introduced to tip the odds towards Ford and Chevrolet and Sox & Martin withdrew from racing three years later.
