For episode 38 we head down to the shop floor at Straub Technologies where hosts Joe Castello and Lake Speed Jr join Jolie Woods (daughter of Joe “Dominator” Woods of Street Outlaws fame).

They’re at a Rottler F69 Automatic Machining Center with Joe Castello’s “Project Pontiac” block on it, which Joile (with the help of Dave Bullock of Wilkins Racing Engines) has just finished the lifter bores and cam tunnel.

The trio talk about Jolie’s what she’s learned in the shop, why she enjoys working on these engines, and the perspective of a 16-year-old and the next generation taking the performance engine building reins from the previous one. (Spoiler alert: Turns out, it’s “a lot funner” than she thought it was going to be.)
