About JWC Motorsports

Who, What and Why we are...

Early in my life, I learned to enjoy cars, trucks and all things motorized. My first car was a clunker, a 1974 Pontiac LeMans. It got me around for a year and then I got a 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. I had dreams of what I wanted to do with that car. Drove it to Myrtle Beach South Carolina with my best friend from High School in the late summer of 1987. I learned a lot about working on cars with those two and my brother-in-law helped. While serving in the United States Air Force I was a computer technician most of my career, but always had a passion for cars, trucks and various racing programs. In 1991 I got to go to to Laguna Seca and watch the Indy Cars, and visit Bobby Rahal pit. In 2004 when I got back from a tour in Saudi Arabia I purchased the 2002 Jeep Wrangler you see here on the site. I bought it used and stock, with in 2 months I had lifted it 4 inches, put on BFGoodrich 33/12.5x15 Mud Terrains and ARB lockers in the front and rear. We had a great time 4-wheeling in the mountains of Colorado. Then in 2007, the Air Force moved the family to Idaho where we got into ATVs hitting the trails around the Mountain Home and Boise area and occasionally taking the Jeep out. When the boys started to drive we picked up our first project car, a 1986 Subaru GL Wagon with a manual transmission. We fixed it up, got it running and addressed the suspension, later a new timing belt kit and clutch went in. It lasted over 25k mils with us and then we sold it for what we bought it for to a friend with a new driver.

Currently, we have the 4 ATVs, 5 Cars and 3 SUVs and 2 truck in the stable. In the Projects page, you will see some of the Projects and or Customer cars we have worked on. I will be keeping these pages updated and include the AMSOIL products we use/used in the project.

In the Spring of 2018 I started racing the 2004 Dodge Neon in the Snake River Region of SCCA in SOLO/Autocross. I also picked up the 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 TS as a mechanics special. You will see some SOLO/Autocross racing coming up on the site as I'm building the Impreza as my Autocross car and will be running with the Snake River Region chapter of the Sports Car Club of America.

JWC Motorsports was created as our (my) retirement project. I wanted to create a business based on something we enjoy, and having been an AMSOIL user since 2008, we decided to become Dealers. Now that I have retired I'm hoping to get into a few more projects.

This is a site also going to document our Travel, Adventure and Subaru's. Although most of the travel adventures here are done with Subaru's anyone can join the site and participate.

We encourage participation; we will not tolerate any abusive or illegal activities. When doing any off-highway traveling we encourage using the Tread Lightly concepts.

I started my travel adventures many years ago, using various vehicles that were comfortable but not universally capable. It was not until I purchased my first Subaru Legacy that I was able to experience travel and adventures in a completely different way.

Here are some of the sites we support as they represent the true Travel, Adventure, Subaru concepts. Please visit them and see if they offer you any support or information.

  1. Travel Channel
  2. SCCA (Sports Car Club of America)
  3. Subaru
  4. Specialized Bicycles
  5. Thule
  6. REI

Travel:

It should be more than just getting from one place to another. You should enjoy travel, it should not be stressful, and it doesn't have to cost much money.

Thinking driving all the historic highways in the USA. It still sounds like a fun trip, may look at that after retirement.

Adventure:

Just about everything you do can be an "Adventure", like travel you should enjoy the Adventures you take, and they should not be stressful, in fact, they should help to relieve stress.

Subaru:

More than a cluster of stars, Subaru is a means of Travel and Adventure. Subaru's can give you the confidence to go places, knowing you are in a safe vehicle can help ease the stresses you may have will "Traveling" and on "Adventures".
