Biography: Gregg’s passion for Drag Racing began early in life. In the late ‘60’s, his father drove a front engine dragster. Of course, all dragsters were front engine in those days. The sights, sounds and smells of burning rubber were the beginnings of the “incurable disease” that Drag Racing represents to him today.
In 1991, Gregg had the opportunity to become a crew member on a Top Alcohol Funny Car. Here, his decision to make Drag Racing a career was cemented. Gregg says, “In those days, I couldn’t afford two ply toilet tissue, but I knew that some day, Drag Racing would be my career.” Beginning with a tool collection that consisted of an old hammer and a rusty “Crescent” wrench, he couldn’t afford all that was involved in having a race team. To maintain motivation toward his goal, Gregg would make small consistent steps, and tell everyone he knew that some day, he’d have a race car and team. He would purchase one or two tools every payday. Predominantly symbolic, these consistent steps did serve to keep him focused on his long range goal. The accomplishments achieved to date speak to his perseverance.
