Jeff Bloch aka “Speedy Cop” was our guest for this week’s podcast. We discussed Jeff and his team’s history within racing and building some of the most memorable cars to race on a track of any type. Jeff and the Gang of Outlaws have been racing for more than a decade and have won 9 IOE’s and almost every other award in the 24 Hours of Lemons racing series, as well as success in most other series including Lucky Dog and AER. While most known for the design of the cars, some are also quite fast and we can remember fondly getting passed many times at our last NJMP race by an Aquarium car. His knowledge and detailed memory of each car is really astonishing. One day we would hope we could get to 10% of his team’s level.
