John has been surrounded by Hot Rods and Race Cars his entire life. Growing up on the family farm in the 1950’s he began working with his father on Flathead Fords and the “new” Chevy V8 engines in their circle track racers. John assembled his first stroker engine at 14 and has experience with circle track, drag racing and even motorcycle racing! At age 18 he drag raced a 1965 GTO and set several track records. After going to Tech school John ran a successful shop specializing in collision refinishing and custom street rod builds for 29 years. In addition to all of that John was as an instructor at WyoTech teaching Street Rod & Custom Fabrication and has now called Speedway Motors his home for the last decade. John spends much of his time assisting our great customers with the parts for their next Hot Rod builds!
