Great addition to a really solid line up. Head Tech Inspector isn't usually a very popular position to have, but I've never known John to be worried about a popularity contest anyhow. What I do know is that he has the technical knowledge, having grown up in a racing family, being a car builder himself (some may not know, but he built some of the most winning Late Models in the early 80's), experience at Hamburger's Oil Pans, etc., experience as a Race Director, and also first hand knowledge/experience as a driver. He knows the effort it takes to bring a racecar to the track for competition, and he also knows how important it is that the rules are followed by all, and to make it and even playing field for all participants. He also understands that there is, and always has been a place in our sport for ingenuity, and that just as many races are won burning the midnight oil in the garage as they are on the track... and as long as it is within the rules, then that is part of the competition that is what this sport is all about.
Folks may not always agree with the Tech Inspector regardless of the track, but I think all who know John will agree that he has the background and the specific skill set for the position that all will respect. That's a solid foundation for one of the most important positions at any speedway.
Look for 2017 to be a great year for Bridgeport Speedway.
Those guys are the real deal down there off of exit 14!
