While Mark may be somewhat new to the Speedway Motors family, having joined us in the fall of 2020, 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. In 2023, Mark received the honor of being inducted into the Mustang Owner's Museum Hall of Fame. He joined Mustang icons Parnelli Jones (Trans Am racing icon) Gary Patterson (President of Shelby American, Inc.) and Steve Prewitt (President of the Mustang Club of America) in only the 5th HoF class in the Museum's history. 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!
