A little history about Jerry McClain…
Basically, I’ve been working on trucks since I was five years old and I got my dad’s tool box and removed the steering wheel & driver’s seat of his ’48 Ford while he was at work. As a youth, I put lawnmower motors on my bikes and souped up soapbox derby carts with motorcycle engines. My 5 older brothers got a free mechanic for their dragsters when I was a teen, but I didn’t care-- I would have done anything to be near the race excitement. I learned from them, and also my dad who kept me busy repairing his work trucks used in his landscape business. My experience and knowledge increased through each job I held: a hoisting engineer in St Louis Local 513; a master mechanic for Fleet Maintenance & Diesel Repair at Chemtech Industries (at which time I attended Forest Park CC and got an Associates Degree in Chemistry); master welder and trailer builder at Trailmobile; and a Cummins, Caterpillar & Detroit Diesel mechanic. My dream of owning my own business came true in 1980—McClain Performance Diesel in Missouri, where I enjoyed being the Owner/Operator for 22 years. I then moved my business to Phoenix, Arizona, where my wife Karen and I now live. All these life and work experiences, and especially the blessings and lessons from the grace of God, have made me familiar with and able to solve most problems anyone can encounter.

The fact that I was a Flight Mechanic and flew airplanes in the Air National Guard, have built and raced top fuel race cars, raced Motocross and quater-mile drag bikes, and competed in tractor pulls just makes my life sweeter and helps me to understand your need for speed and your desire for power. I also understand our country’s need to be less dependent on foreign oil and am concerned about our environment, therefore I am involved in the development and use of alternative fuels. I pledge to do my very best to improve your power, fuel economy, acceleration and fun!
