About the host
Doug Herbert competes in both the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA), piloting his 5,500 horsepower Snap-on Top Fuel Dragster. Doug Herbert is the only four-time IHRA Top Fuel Champion in history. He won the coveted title in 1992, 1994, 1995 and 1996. Racing has always been a large part of Herbert's life. Growing up in Southern California he began by racing BMX bicycles, which after two years led to his involvement in motocross racing. Herbert then made the transfer from land to water as he began competing in boat racing's Stock Outboard and MOD VP categories. After two years of boat racing, he dropped anchor and began his drag racing career in the NHRA Top Alcohol classes, eventually advancing to the Top Fuel classes of the NHRA and IHRA. When Herbert is not on the track, he's managing Herbert Performance Parts, a multi-million dollar high-performance auto parts business that his father, Chet Herbert, started in 1959. The company's headquarters are located in Cherryville, N.C.
