Benchracing With the Veazie Brothers


The Round Six Gearheads sat down with the Veazie brothers, Evin and Justin of So-Cal Speed Shop fame for an evening of benchracing and story-telling. From humble roots sweeping the floors of the famed hot rod shop to putting together the 2012 AMBR-winning Indy Speedster… and perhaps mention of a fenderless ’79 Monte Carlo with a severely-raked ’33 Ford grille shell, this episode has it all.
