Zach has been interested in cars from around age 10. He spent a few summers hanging around his uncles repair shop and knew that is what he wanted to do. After high school he worked for a local shop specializing in muscle cars and engine repair. After attending trade school for Automotive Technology he worked for a variety of automotive businesses including dealerships, independent shops and a restoration shop. In 2010 he joined the tech team at Speedway and has had the pleasure of traveling to car shows all over the country and meeting many of our great customers in person!
