Driver Bio:
First car ever was a '67 GTO that I bought and restored in 1989 when I was 17. I have been racing since 1989 and loved the Pontiac hobby ever since. I built my first dragster in 1992 from scratch and started bracket racing heavily in the chase of going faster and faster. Pretty much lived at the track for a long time. I had the racing bug pretty bad! Then I got involved into engine building in the early 90's and by the mid '90s Kauffman Racing Equipment was formed. The rest is history after that. Hammered down and put the nose to the grind stone, chasing power and speed with Pontiacs!
