Racing is John's addiction. Gemini was formed to support his very serious "hobby". John has been drag racing since the 1970s — he's never outgrown his childhood dream to race. He and his wife and his team enjoy weekend racing and the friendships they form.
John and his Time Keeper were the 1999 and 2008 Beaver Track Champion and are four-time IHRA Ironman Trophy winners.

The second 2014 Top Beaver win came Saturday night August 9th for the Timekeeper! After losing a water pump during the Flashback Friday race the car was fixed Saturday morning and won all day. John also continued to the finals on Sunday before falling after 11 round wins in 1 weekend. With 4 races left John is now 5th overall and leading the second points series at Beaver Springs. Summer fun continues after busy work weeks!
After a late season start due to updates with the Timekeeper, a full race schedule is underway. We will attend races in PA , MD, and Ohio this summer. Hope to see you at the races!
