More aboutBig 3 Automotive LLC
From our high school days, the founders of Big 3 Racing have had a passion for high performance. After we graduated from the Medina County Career Center, we all attended the University of Northwestern Ohio. As we matured into our college years, our drive to be in the industry grew. We quickly made a reputation for ourselves, resulting in many noise complaints as we raced down the sleepy streets of Lima, Ohio. After the first year, we purchased a house in the small town and started to work on streetcars from our small garage. We spent every penny we borrowed and earned on our streetcars and parts for the remaining three years of college. Dashing ahead, we graduated from college and sped home with bright futures ahead of us. However, we returned home and faced an entirely different race. Our dream jobs faded into “9-5” careers, coming home to a harsh reality. We soon realized that we would make one if we could not find our path. With much deliberation and no plan for the future, we found a 3,000 square feet space in November 2006 and quickly invested in it to become our shop. What started as a shared hobby and an escape from the daily routine rapidly developed into something much bigger. In the high-performance industry, you need to be bold and take risks, a principle Big 3 Racing was founded on. At this time, Rick, one of the founders, was heavily into Drag Racing; he would race every weekend. Rick’s “grandma green” 72 Plymouth Duster stuck out like a sore thumb; however, it was one of the best known “sleepers” in the area. We quickly grew a following and decided to name our shop ‘Big 3 Racing’, after the “Big 3” American Motor Companies. The big secret was out; Big 3 Racing was flying and quickly became noticed by locals and national customers. Our team quickly outgrew the small storage facility and moved to a larger space to complement customer needs. Our team decided to leave their current jobs and commit to the shop full time upon the move. Every team member worked full time within six months, mostly on more general repairs and slowly transitioning to high-performance vehicles. After one year into their new shop, the team took another stride and purchased a Chassis Dyno. With the help of one of the founders, the Chassis Dyno customers came speeding in. The group invested most of their earnings in new tools for a better, faster and more efficient shop. Along with a growing reputation came the need for more employees; we found ourselves overwhelmed with work and decided to hire more sets of hands. Thus bringing Alex as a full-time technician, Dustin, a service manager, and Rick’s sister to help with the financial balance of the team. The shop is currently operated by Bob, Chuck, and Rick’s three original owners. Big 3 Racing has significant plans for the future, including travelling to new locations and exposing our brand further. Big 3 Racing resides in Hinckley, Ohio, in a 14,000 square foot facility. Our largest facility is equipped with a Chassis Dyno, eight lifts, a metal fabrication shop and a large customer lounge.
