Patty and Chloe
In 1997, Ed Starr started Magtech in his home garage. Between growing up on a farm that just happened to have a Sprint car, and working as a Sprint car and Silver Crown mechanic, Ed was familiar with the field.
Magtech started rather successfully, and by 2003 it was time for more space. Magtech moved to a 1,800-square-foot shop in Speedway, Indiana. Later that year, Rex Westerfield joined Magtech's team. Rex previously worked with Sprint cars and also for Hall of Fame engine builder Galen Fox at Foxco. Rex has now achieved master technician level at Magtech and is proficient in all product lines.
In September of 2003, Patty Crull joined Magtech's office. Patty started her racing career at Patrick Racing, later moving to Bettenhausen Racing, and then to her current accounting positions at Magtech, and also Indy Race Experience (Indy Parts and EMI).
Thirteen years ago Chloe Starr started as Magtech's welcoming committee and head of security, her recent passing has left us all missing her.
In 2007, Tim Trees came on board at Magtech from the Indy Car world. Tim has also achieved master technician status at Magtech, and specializes in MSD products as well as being our Ford go to guy. With the company’s success it was once again time to add more space to our shop.
In 2010, Magtech moved to our current 6,000-square-foot shop on the historic Gasoline Alley in Indianapolis, Indiana, the racing capitol of the world.
In 2016, we added Greg Hight (Haji) in our machine shop, Theresa Kolter as the office manager and Engineer Greg Zimmerman in our research and development department.
