What else parents have to say:

"What a difference this class has made."

Frank Valencia

"I have to give a huge thanks to you guys and the other instructors. Me and Ava went out this weekend for our first race since joining she drove with so much more confidence and I felt way more confident with tuning . We got down to 3 before we bowed out but what a difference this class has made just wanted to say thank you!"

"She won her first race ever"

Kevin Shearer

"Baylee won her first race ever: 13-18 age group at the Southwest Showdown in Tucson. TIBR Jr was a huge help. We watched them over and over again on the way down. The Staging video is the best in my opinion with all the body off the car so they can see it. Good job!"

"The content is very educational"

Jason Rudy

"Cole loves your program and really enjoys working with you, Justin, and the team! The content is very educational, especially for a younger driver like Cole, although he has been racing for almost five years, there are a lot of fundamentals that he is learning, practicing, and retaining better than if dad is harping on him about it. The practice tree challenges and awesome prizes are motivational."

"Luke’s reputation as a racer and teacher is unrivaled in the Drag Racing community."

Kim Fritts

"Luke’s reputation as a racer and teacher is unrivaled in the Drag Racing community. For the driver, parent, crew chief or team that wants to accel and learn how to succeed at a faster pace, this program will cover all of the bases. There couldn’t be a better person to co-ordinate and organize a racing program as his program for big car racers has seen extreme success. Also, with his track record in his personal career, this becomes a very complete program."
