The team leader is Terry Hedrick, president of the company. Terry brings many years of racing and automotive repair business experience to the company.

As a world class racing champion during the early Funny Car days, Terry is no stranger to getting the maximum performance out of the available technology. Terry's car, The Supershaker, was the first Chevy powered car to run in the 6's in the quarter mile and the first to go over 200 MPH in the quarter mile. After retiring from active race car driving, Terry owned and operated highly successful automotive related businesses, most recently AAA Transmission and Sunstate Converters in Fresno, CA.
Terry is recognized by his peers as being one of the few masters of the art of diagnosing and understanding torque converters and automatic transmissions and drivetrains.
