SCTA Road Runners member Vic Edelbrock came to California from Wichita, Kansas during the depression days. At the time he rented an open air garage, keeping the rent down. Business was pretty slow so Vic began fiddling around with engines. Vic designed new heads and manifolds. He founded his own company Edelbrock in 1938. His venture became a great success, and it didn't take long before he was head of his own factory in Los Angeles. Vic was also by then recognized as one of hot rodding's speed king. Driving his cars in the early days, Vic was a consistent winner at Muroc and other dry lakes. In 1941 Vic became S.C.T.A. Season Champion for his achievements on the lakes that year.
