Rahn Tobler, the quintessential crew chief, reflects on 50 years of speed

Tobler embodied what every crew chief strived to achieve: Patience. Knowledge. Performance. Even when NHRA on Fox's Bruno Massel put him on the spot to describe his favorite moment from his whole career, Tobler mentally reviewed 50 years of experiences in milliseconds and gave the perfect answer.

It’s been a very storied career. I never thought when I started in 1971 with Dick Venables Sr. working with a local Top Fuel team in Houston, Texas, that I’d still be doing this almost 50 years later. I’m very fortunate to have worked with so many successful team owners and wonderful people. "—Rahn Tobler
