                                             Ken Lowe
                                          Winchester KY
Today Ken still goes to the start line as much as possible but time constraints often prevent him being in the drivers’ seat and he finds a lot of enjoyment assisting his clients go fast,  win races and championships. Several of his clients won their championships at the Winternationals just last June. But don’t ever think Ken has given up the drivers’ seat just yet.

                                                                    Hold on tight to your dreams....
