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 a graduate of the Skip Barber 3 day racing school open-wheel course at Big Willow.

An experienced entrepreneur, Jon Massengale founded several Austin companies in technology, marketing and broadcasting.

Jon is one of the founders and hosts of Speed City and can be heard every Sunday at 7 p.m. on TALK 1370AM and on SiriusXM every F1 race weekend.
