Kevin grew up turning wrenches with his father Bill Webel, a lifelong mechanic who was part of the crew on the 4X Speedway sprint car driven by Jan Opperman and Doug Wolfgang. He literally grew up on the infield of Midwest Speedway sitting on the roof of his grandpa's car (K.B. Kaar). In the early 90's he raced NHRA D-Stock with a Daytona Yellow 69 Chevelle SS and had a matching yellow big block 69 ElCamino. After a 16 year stint in the Nebraska prison system working as a K9 Handler for drug interdiction, he returned to his true passion, Chevrolets! He is currently building a 1954 Chevy BelAir 4 door with a 454/TH400 and 10 bolt posi rear. You can read about a lot of the build in his Tech articles with parts supplied from Speedway Motors.
