Herzog Motorsports Documentary “Patrons of Horsepower”

“Patrons of Horsepower,” a one-hour documentary on the history of Herzog Motorsports and founders Stanley and Randy Herzog, with support from their father Bill, to debut this Sunday on Fox Sports 1 with repeat showings next week.


Produced by veteran motorsports broadcaster Rick Benjamin, excerpts from the “special” will be shown during the private gala scheduled at the Speedway Motors Museum of American Speed in Lincoln, Nebraska, on October 15, 2021. The gala will help kick off a long-term display at the Museum of the iconic cars and trucks that raced under the Herzog Motorsports banner in the 1980s through the 2000s. The team competed in SCORE, CORR, SODA, NHRA Funny Car, and the Baja 1000 and Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.

Drivers interviewed for the documentary include Jimmie Johnson, Ricky Johnson, Dave Mason, Danny Ashcraft, Scott Douglas, Larry Ragland, Ryan Arciero, Todd Bodine and Cruz and Tony Pedregon, along with other icons of the sport.

“Everyone we talked to for the documentary had tremendous regard and respect for the Herzogs,” said Rick Benjamin, founder of production company CPG, whose on-air career in motorsports has spanned 30 years. “Jimmie Johnson, who’s the glue that holds the story together, credits them with giving him the foundation for what has turned out to be a Hall-of-Fame, legendary career at the pinnacle of American racing.”

“I was taken by the love most of these people have for the family and what they did for their lives and careers. That is quite a legacy for sure!”

Benjamin added, “It has been a lot of work to put all this together. I’m indebted to a great group of people who reached out to me and our group to take on this project and to our amazing CPG creative pros. I am really proud of the story we are telling here. I’m looking forward to the show’s premier along with the unveiling of the Herzog exhibit at the Museum in October.”
