Veteran Pro Stock racer John Gaydosh Jr. has had an ambitious start to the 2021 year.
On the first of January, he opened his own business – Gaydosh Performance in Baltimore, Md. The business specializes in chassis work, engine building, and dyno services.
Then in the offseason, he bought a 2019 Camaro, that had never been run, from fellow Pro Stock racer Wally Stroupe and Gaydosh is moving towards competing in 2021 in NHRA’s Camping World Drag Racing Series.
“I bought the Camaro from (Wally) Stroupe and I had Chris McGaha build me a motor and I’m coming out to play,” Gaydosh said. “This car I bought has never been to the racetrack. It was built for somebody else and the gentlemen who bought it had some health issues and Wally told me about the car and what we arranged for the price I couldn’t pass up. This is my opportunity to do it the way I want to and to come back and do it right.”
“I have jumped in with both feet this year with my new business and my Pro Stock team. Who knows, maybe one day I will learn how to fly an airplane next?”
