Josh has two decades of experience as a fabricator, most recently working for championship winning NASCAR teams.
He was a farm kid, born and raised in Bay City, Michigan. Growing up on a farm takes a lot of hard work and dedication. That's where he learned a strong work ethic is not only needed, but required to become successful. On the farm when he was about 14 years old is when he first picked up a welding lead from his papa's old Miller arc welder. With the guidance of his dad and papa, he sat on a rickety old stool, welding bead after bead after bead.
The first thing he fabricated was a go kart from scrap steel and an old snowmobile engine. Creating and building things became his lifelong passion. He moved on to race cars and built and raced several cars in Michigan and Florida. He later moved to North Carolina where he did chassis and body fabrication for NASCAR teams. He has more than 70 wins in the top three NASCAR series, along with multiple championships and a little success racing his own cars and snowmobiles.
