Tim Molzen

We stopped by the pits and talked with Tim and checked out his cool early-sixties Dart. Many of you may remember this car in Day-Glo orange, but it now has a rusty patina wrap and has taken a whole new look on life. The LS7 beast under the hood remains as well as a laundry list of go-fast goodies. Tim’s been AutoCrossing for five years and loves the camaraderie and friendly competition of Goodguys racing events.

Bill Graves Sr

Class: Forgeline Street Machine

When Goodguys announced they were going to award points per event and have a national class winner I decided to try to run for the championship. Slowly over the years I’ve modified my 66 to where it is today. And changes continue to this day. My wife of almost 3 years, Marti, and I are living the dream and enjoying autocrossing with our Goodguys family and friends. We look forward to traveling across this great country to attend as many Goodguys events as we can. We find there are always new friends and great folks to meet who share our car passion for COOL cars and HORSEPOWER!!!!

Class: Pro Class

I have been into cars for over 55 years. I ran in my first autocross event 48 years ago. I let autocross lapse for 35 years until I entered a Good-Guys event with my ’30 Model A sedan. Next year I returned with my El amino and never looked back. At that point I was invited to a road course and autocross event and I was hooked.

Andrew Chenoweth

Class: Forgeline Street Machine

Have been racing autocross for 7 years now. All in the same patina green challenger that everyone knows. The biggest win so far in my career would be winning the Inaugural Holley Moparty Grand Champion Vintage class in 2020. I have won 3 Goodguys Street Machine class events and 1 Pro Class. None of the autocrossing endeavors I have been apart of would be possible without the help of my mom, dad and sister. They are the backbone of this small family team and I am just the lucky lug nut that gets to sit behind the wheel!!

Bob Bertelsen

Class: Pro

My fist ride was with Kyle Tucker from DSE. I was hooked. I took my Camaro to a couple shows and tried autocross. My car was not set up for this, so I built Code Red, my 1972 Firebird and started driving it in 2010. In 2012 I finished Brute Force, my 1971 Camaro. It ran really well and I won a Street machine event a couple times. Next in 2014 was Orange Rush my 1969 C10 Pickup. With that truck I won several truck autocross events at Goodguys. In 2017 I started racing my current car, Green mamba a 1968 Corvette. I have qualified fastest in my class at most events and won 3 shootouts including Vendor Shootout in Columbus. When I am not racing, I can be found in my shop at home building the next car. Currently I am building a 1963 Corvette to replace Green mamba.
