FEBRUARY’S FEATURED TRACK DAY WINNER
VEHICLES: 2017 Ford Mustang and a 1968 Ford Mustang
DRIVER BIO: “Teacher, coach, and avid racing fan
Earth and space teacher. Have taught Physics, Physical Science, Biology, Oceanography, and Meteorology.
Presently coach 7th and 8th-grade girl’s soccer. Have coached baseball, football, and golf.
My life long love with cars began as a kid when my dad would take my brother and I to local dirt tracks. We’d go into the pits at the end of the night and meet the drivers and just enjoy the sights and smells of the race track. After a while, we started attending the old Tioga Speedway asphalt oval in NY and eventually found Watkins Glen. That’s where I realized my love of road racing and eventually Sports Cars! “
UPGRADES – 2017 MUSTANG: Ford Performance hood struts, America Muscle paddle shifters, Axis sport rims, Roush axle-back exhaust, and Continental Extreme Contact Sport Tires.
Our February winner, Bruce Smallacombe has a thing for Mustangs both old and new. In his garage, you’ll see a gorgeous trophy-winning teal blue 1968 mustang and a 2017 Grabber Blue Mustang with a host of aftermarket upgrades.

We’ll start off with the R1 to save the best for last. On the R1, you will find an upgraded KR Tuned exhaust, stainless steel brake lines, Graves velocity stacks, rearsets, smog delete, and various exterior modifications. These are some solid upgrades that make for a very quick bike. Now for the Supra: Jesse first picked it up 15 years ago as a non-turbo automatic. Since then, he has restored and modified this car into a stunning work of art and engineering. Jesse’s has a grocery list of mods, but the car’s most notable feature lurks under its hood. In the spotless engine bay, you will find a twin charged 7m with a Holset hy-35 turbo and an Eaton m62 supercharger on a fully custom setup. This is a very impressive build that you have to check out for yourself, so make sure you drop by Jesse’s profile via the button below!

VEHICLE BIO – F-350: “I bought this truck Easter weekend of 2006. I’ve handpicked each of the upgrades and built it with reliability and consistency at the drag strip in mind. I still pull trailers with it and haul with it.”
VEHICLE BIO – FREIGHTLINER: “I drive this truck at work and it’s a blast to drive. Full locking rears, 13-speed trans, and plenty of power”
VEHICLE BIO – EDGE: “My wife and I stumbled across this Sport while we were looking for one to just test drive and see if we liked the Edge Sport in general. Originally black wasn’t a color my wife was very interested in, but as soon as we walked up to it at the dealership she just stopped and said, ‘Holy Shit! It’s Tuxedo Black’. We purchased it in March of 2018 and absolutely love it! This will only ever be a mild build, but I still want to see what she will do in the 1/4 mile!!!!”
VEHICLE BIO – JOHN DEERE: “I’ve owned this tractor since early 2008 and have done so much to it I can’t even begin to explain it all. It was used to remove parts and drivetrain from the truck that was the doner for the build of The Vengeful One, along with many minor excavating projects such as driveway expansion and tree removal.”
Our first track day winner, Ben Maurer has one of the most diverse garages out of all of our winners thus far. With everything from a big-rig to a tractor, Ben could haul just about anything.
