CRAIG HENDRICKSON used to have his head in the clouds,
but now he's got his feet firmly planted on the ground.
Hendrickson spent seven years in the Air Force as an Astronautical Engineer
working on space programs [NASA Apollo and USAF DSP],
but since his separation from the service, he's gone into drag racing
and the aftermarket parts business in a big way.
After building a modified eliminator machine,
Craig came to the unhappy realization that there just weren't any good
information or hard parts around for Pontiacs--so he decided to provide some.
His first effort was a modest booklet that listed all of the heavy-duty part
numbers and specifications for Pontiacs; since then, his H-O Racing Specialties
has become the acknowledged leader in Pontiac pieces.
A former record holder in SS/KA, Hendrickson has stayed in racing for more than
just business purposes. While he considers work a necessity, there's nothing
like getting out there on the starting line and checking your reflexes against
From it's humble beginnings, H-O has grown into a
half-million-dollar-per-year mail order business, with over 50 percent of its product
list designed by Hendrickson. When it comes to Pontiacs and underdogs of all sorts,
Craig Hendrickson is the man to see.
