Both our founders share a passion "Drag-racing" which satisfy their need for speed and also created the stage for an unprecedented winner's mentality.

Lex Joon, aka “The Flying Dutchman” emigrated 10 years ago to the USA to pursue his American Dream.

Lex the fastest Dutchman on 4 wheels and his wife Gerda brought their F.I.A. Championship winning Top Fuel racing team to the American nationwide NHRA race tracks.
