John Green has more than 11 years experience in the automotive world as general mechanic; and 14 years working within different racing industries. After graduating with his Associates degree in Automotive Technology, John worked for three years as a technician for his uncle obtaining his ASE Master Tech certification. In this role, he fostered his small business knowledge as he learned to help manage the shop and run a small business.
Growing up on a farm, John learned from an early age how to diagnose, repair, and manufacture solutions in order to fix or rebuild tractors, small engine machinery, motorcycles, four wheelers, snow mobiles, cars, and trucks. His passion for problem solving, mechanical knowledge and learning lead him to working on race teams. While working full time, he spent his nights and weekends as a crew member and eventually engine builder for several local teams. His racing career started on the drag strip but quickly moved to circle track racing, with involvement on dirt track sprint cars in Pennsylvania and Southern Wheelen Modified series of asphalt modified cars.
To further expand his knowledge in the automotive, performance and racing industries, John and his now wife Tami moved to Charlotte in 2007. John again took full time jobs starting with general mechanics, engine building, and working his way into performance automotive industry in which he quickly became Shop Foreman and Shop Manager for 3 years. These opportunities provided experience in dyno tuning, performance rebuilds, and forced induction, all while increasing his industry networking and expanding his knowledge of managing a performance shop.
In his time away from work, John enjoys outdoor activities, including hunting, fishing, racing, four wheeling, snow mobiles, softball, kickball and community service activities such as volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.
