Whats new at Graveyard - From Jon the owner!
Hey Guys, Jon Walker - Founder of DSM Graveyard Inc.
Its been a long time since I put up a post here that wasn't an add, but I wanted to just touch base with everyone and say Hey! and let everyone know what we have been up to over the last few months!
So, we have had a crazy fall, winter, and spring. In September, we opened up something kinda new in our import tuner industry - A Chain style strip mall. - AKA "Graveyard Motorsports" if you have heard of it. That's us. We started work on it early September and had it up by the end of the month. It looks great, and we have also incorporated Autocross racing in our MASSIVE Parking lot on certain Sundays. Long story short, before we really it kick off a great year, the strip mall "owned by K-Mart" was sold to Menards.... and we have to be out of our new store at the end of May hdamn: NO Worries though, we did get a really good deal out of it, and we have been able to put more emphasis on our new Installation shop, with Daryl Eggan, a well know DSMer from Wyotech. We have opened that shop up a few weeks ago, and things are going smoothly.
As for opening up another chain store right away, we know our ever popular machine shop will get slammed again this summer even after adding new team members on board to get everything running GREAT. So, after this summer, we plan on moving our machine shop, the new but small installation shop and the consolidated strip mall, to a new much larger facility. We do not know at this time if we will be able to incorporate autocross at the new DSM Graveyard Headquarters, but we do have our property picked out, and are aiming for September of 2012, end of the summer.
As for my racing career, I will not be driving the FWD 94 Eclipse Drag Car, and will be focusing more time on building and directing the company, and racing Top Fuel. Our team has been invited to IHRA Nitro Jam (ESPN 2) Grand Bend International as one of 4 Top Fuel Dragsters, for the main event. I really want to rep the graveyard in ESPN, that would be the highlight of our company brand in national media. SO since it will be there, the Dragster chassis and our team need a mega makeover:sneaky:. As you can see in this video, we have the car, we just need some kick ass uniforms, and we are painting this dragster BLACK with Graveyard Motorsports Theme If your on the East side of MI, or Alberta Canada, come check us out July 4th at Grand Bend and say hey!
So, keep a good look out for some really cool growth out here in our DSM Land in KalamaZoo MICH! We are really sprucing up the place out here inside and out!
Thanks! and we appreciate you guys!
