While Mark may be new to the Speedway Motors family, he is certainly not new to creating engaging content for the automotive aftermarket. Mark has always enjoyed telling a story with words on paper (and now a screen) since high school where he was the editor of the school paper. It would be after college before he could put his love of cars and writing together to start a long career (nearly three decades !) writing and editing for numerous automotive magazines. In that span of time he even was able to squeeze out a book on the super popular Fox body Mustangs that were built from 1979-1993. After many years writing about automotive performance and restoration, including the restoration of his own 1966 Ford Mustang hardtop, building a really cool Factory Five Racing Mk 3 Cobra replica, and most recently handling a full performance buildup of his own Fox Mustang, Mark comes to us ready to help Speedway Motors usher in a new level of content for our customer base!
