Jon’s gear-head pedigree goes back to his first dirt bike at age 9. From there it includes lots of small block Chevy’s, Chrysler Hemi’s, Turbo Buick’s, rotary power, BMW M power, superchargers, nitrous and a few 32v DOHC V8’s designed by Lotus. Some open wheel time, some drag racing, and lots of time under his lift with a wrench in his hand. And I challenge you to ask a question about new car specs he doesn’t know. A native Austinite, Jon has been spinning his tires in the Austin area since he was riding his Honda Trail 70 down Mopac while it was under construction.
Jon is also a graduate of the Skip Barber racing school completing the 3 day racing school open wheel course at Willow Springs Raceway.
Jon is one of the founders and hosts of Speed City and can be heard every Saturday on ESPN Austin at 10am and on the Speed City podcast. Jon is also the COO and co-founder of Upstream Communications in Austin, Texas. Upstream Communications is a nationally recognized new media communications firm specializing in political and non-profit organizations with clients across the United States.
