About the team:

We have had people as young as 6 and as old as 75 working on the John 3:16 car over the years.  There have been too many people who have shown us kindness and a passion for what we do to list them all.  The long-term members of the team are Virgil Hemrick as crew chief, Ed Hendley as Chief of Transport and Aaron Schwartzbart as driver.  Most recently, we have received wonderful support from all the guys and girls at Need::Speed and Wild Pony Motorsports.  We are grateful to all that have helped in big and small ways.

About the tracks:

This year Aaron drove at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, Willow Springs International Raceway, Auto Club Speedway, Buttonwillow Raceway Park and Laguna Seca.  In prior years, we have gone to Infineon.  Additionally Aaron drove in NASCAR from 1990 through 1995 at various tracks around the south including Martinsville and Bristol.
