Jerry Titus once again captured the attention of Carroll Shelby, as Titus had once repaired a Maserati race car for Shelby during a test drive of the 1965 Shelby GT350 for Sports Car Graphic. Shelby offered Titus a place on his SCCA National Championship team, and Titus won the 1965 Pacific Coast National Championship with a production GT350. In 1966 Titus entered the newly created SCCA TransAm series for Shelby's Terlingua Racing Team and achieved victory at the last race of the season at Riverside International Raceway. Titus left his position as editorinchef at Sports Car Graphic and became a fulltime racing driver for Shelby's team. He went on to become the number one team driver and won both the 1967 Manufacturer's Championship for Ford and the 1967 Driver's Championship as well. In the 1968 season, poor performance by the Terlingua team lead Titus to switch to racing the Pontiac Firebird under TG Racing for the 1969 series.Titus entered the 1969 24 Hours of Daytona and raced to a class victory and an overall third place. The 1969 season was plagued with engine configuration problems for the new car, resulting in 3 DNFs for the team. The highlight of the season was a secondplace finish for Titus at Sainte Jovite, Quebec.Titus completed only one race out of seven in the 1970 season, taking seventh place at Laguna Seca.
Rick Titus is an American former race car driver and now automotive journalist, radio personality and podcaster. Titus hosts Drivers Talk Radio, a syndicated radio program and weekly automotive podcast. Drivers Talk Radio. He is the son of another former race driverturnedjournalist, Jerry Titus. As a driver, Titus won 11 races on the SCCA Endurance Road Racing circuit. His handson involvement with cars and trucks, including a stint as head of engineering at a leading automotive accessories manufacturer, led him to a career in journalism after he retired from racing. Titus has written over 350 articles or segments for several magazines, including Motor Trend (as Technical Editor), Popular Mechanics (as West Coast Automotive Editor), TNN (as NASCAR Editor), Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords (as Engineering Editor), Road & Track (as Features Editor) and Sports Car magazine (as Technical Editor). In addition, Titus is a spokesman for Ford Motor Company and has appeared in several ad campaigns and product information videos for various Ford vehicles. He is a lifetime member of the American Automotive Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association(AARWBA) as well as a member of the Motor Press Guild. In 1990, Chuck Beck of Special Editions and Rick Titus took seven Ford Festivas, gutted the interiors, and mounted Ford SHO (Yamahabuilt for the Taurus SHO) 3.0liter V6s behind the front seats to make the car midengined. There were substantial cosmetic and mechanical changes, including relocating the gas tank to the front of the car, structural bracing and improvements to the chassis, adding wider wheel arches to accommodate a wider stance and larger tires, and a complete redesign of the suspension. These changes resulted in a car that could accelerate from 060 miles per hour (097km/h) in 4.6 seconds, travel the quartermile (0.4km) in 12.9 seconds at 100.9 miles per hour (162.4km/h), and could achieve a lateral acceleration figure ranging from .95 to 1.04g. It was called the SHOgun.
