History Started with first funny car in 2000, running with the IBAA. Joey and my crew chief Lee have been together at the start.
Drag Racing History Joey grew up a few blocks from the old Edmonton International Speedway which left a huge impression on him and the reason the nostalgia funny car was such a good fit for him. He has been involved with race cars as the owner of Joey's Place since to late 70's. Joey's Place has painted many of the top race cars in Western Canada. A highlight was being asked to paint Roland Leong's first Hawaiian dragster.
