In a joint broadcast with the Hidden Horsepower Podcast, Joe Castello and Lake Speed Jr sit down with Mark Vieau of Scott Performance Wire to talk about his storied history in engine building and racing.

Vieau recalls his days as a kid watching A.J. Foyt racing at the Milwaukee Mile, his first race car (a AA funny car) as a teen, and the winding road that led him down to NASCAR Cupland.

He also talks about NASCAR of the 90’s and the Busch series when teams came and went with only one or two years of sponsorship, and how NASCAR technology ended up revolutionizing the NHRA.

Finally, Vieau beautifully sums up all the things his heroes and mentors gave to him, and how the racing industry ethos of doing whatever you have to do to get the job done made him a lifelong member of the sport.
