UPDATE: MATS to Host Tom Hoover, HEMI® Engine Developer, and Original Members of Ramchargers Drag Racing Team
Recognized as one of the true innovators in engine technology, Hoover served as a Chrysler Corporation automotive engineer from 1955 to 1979. He was responsible for launching the company’s HEMI® race program and developing the renowned 426 HEMI ® engine, which employed specially designed hemispherical combustion chambers for enhanced performance in a wide range of applications.

Hoover welcomed the opportunity to participate in the 12th annual MATS, which will honor both the 50th anniversary of the HEMI® engine and the 100th anniversary of the Dodge brand. “MATS is one of the most popular gatherings to celebrate Detroit’s original performance car era, so it only makes sense to recognize the half-century mark for the HEMI® at this event,” Hoover said. “I look forward to visiting with many fellow Mopar® fans in Las Vegas.”

The Ramchargers Team 2006

Hoover helped found the Ramchargers in 1959 along with Wayne Erickson, Dick Maxwell, Don Moore, Herman Mozer and Jim Thornton. The group was initially made up of engineers who functioned as an independent R and D team to help build Chrysler’s racing program. It later became one of the most successful drag racing teams of all time. The Ramchargers broke the most time barriers in drag racing history and earned the most National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Super Stock titles during the sport's golden age of factory competition (1950s-1970s)
