Tmcp #250 Steve Saleen – Visionary, Race Car Driver, And Entrepreneur

Saleen-Mustang

 


This weeks interview is with Steve Saleen, founder of Saleen performance vehicles and a race car driver!
Steve got into racing in his early years and had high standards for what he wanted to race – aiming for Indy and Formula One. Like all lofty goals, reality pushed him closer to earth and he got into a paid position racing lowly sedans for Pontiac Motor Division. In 1982 his team raced and won against Ford. While at the track he got to know the people at Ford and found out that they were planning four cylinder Mustangs but were open to supporting Steve if he wanted to build V8 Saleen Mustangs and the rest is history.
