Shawn's passion for racing started at an early age, beginning with building bikes and then trucks and cars. Since the age of ten, he has raced a bit of everything including Sport Bikes, Flat Track, Superminis, Supermoto, and Time Attack. In 2004, Shawn began two-wheeled racing with sanctioning bodies as a hobbyist. 
Inspired by the physical, mental, and mechanical engineering challenges of running one of the most demanding courses in the world, Pikes Peak. Shawn began to build his purpose-built all-carbon 240Z in 2016. 
Shawn's Z has become among the most recognizable Z's out there today. Realizing his bucket list dream, Shawn successfully competed in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in 2020 & 2021.
ATC Racing was born in 2020 when Shawn and Jaime joined forces to turn their passion for racing into a business. Utilizing all of the skills and knowledge acquired over a lifetime of building and racing, ATC Racing has become the a premier provider of race car parts and build services.

After years of working in the finance industry, he left his job in 2015 to pursue a career in the Aftermarket Automotive Industry. He’s worked with several notable organizations including CSF and Global Time Attack.
