Racing History:  
I still do Chassis Fabrication and setup for various teams - but now only semi-professionally as it's hard to feed a family that way. I started racing Karts almost 40 years ago. Among various Modified Production cars, I raced an old Top Fuel dragster in early 70's. Started AutoCrossing when I quit drag racing. Started getting back into wheel to wheel road racing with A/B Production Corvettes in mid 70's. In early 80's I went stock car racing with everything from Hot Stocks to Late Models. I went back to shoeing a Camaro in SCCA's American Sedan in late 90's and won 2 cendiv SCCA Championships. I sold the Camaro and raced in Improved Touring with a Honda Civic and won 3 more championships. In 2002 I came to my senses and decided rear drive V8 was going to be home - Built the FFR Spec Racer and refuse to look back. I wanted to race in a series where the cars were FUN-FAST-DURABLE. The Factory Five Spec Racer Series is that. The lap times I turn with my FFR are faster than those I used to turn with my A/S Camaro and the cost of maintenance on the car is easily 75% less. While the series is still in it's early years and the rules still need a little work, it is off to an exceptionally good start and is growing like wildfire!
