I'm from buckeye az. Where beard seats were made until ed sold and retired, a few years ago. I got into desert racing in the mid 70's when i found my uncles hot vw's mags. Think i was about 5. He took me to an adra race close to home, for my 1st time in 79 i was 9.i was instantly hooked, it was a night race, at least it was still going after dark.my dad started me out with a stick welder when i was 11, or so. By the time i was 16, i had 3 tries at making my own tube bender. I finally bought a hossfeld at 21. Now i'm a full time fabricator, at my own shop. Dbmetalworx, which is a job shop. Meaning if its metal, we can make it or fix it. Currently racing the bitd series, in class 10. Future plans include a new 10 car , and a score lite..oh yeah i am very addicted racedezert. See ya at the finish line.. ...db...
