John has been working on anything he could get his hands
on since he can remember. He learned the basics on things like lawn

wrenches on everything from micro-sprints to sprint cars and street
cars to 8 second drag cars. After graduating with a degree in Automotive

shop mechanic and pit crew member for Brunnhoelzl Racing, in the NASCAR
Whelen Southern Modified series and working part time for Sears Auto
Center. Since Steve and Chris offered him the job at 3SX John has been
learning a new type of tuning. Bringing his knowledge of race engine
