Vic Wood has spent the majority of his career in or around the automotive specialty-equipment industry, including appointments on the board of directors of the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association and the Australian National Drag Racing Association. He started drag racing at the age of 16 and continued as a competitor in various motorsports in 2004, when he retired from driving after going 234 mph in a modified roadster at Bonneville.
Steve Matusek’s deep-seated passion for the aftermarket industry was cultivated from an early age. Helping his father with various Comp Eliminator race cars, Matusek literally grew up at drag strips around the country. He founded Aeromotive Fuel Systems in 1994, but even the demands of running a manufacturing company could not keep Matusek away from the race track.
