MP 391: Kevin Jeannette, My Racing Life and Career, Part 1

September Tue 25, 2018

The sublime Porsche mechanic, crew chief, and restorer Kevin Jeannette--father of pro racer Gunnar Jeannette--visits The Marshall Pruett Podcast to share stories in a two-part My Racing Life and Career feature. He's run some of the world's greatest drivers--Foyt, Unser, Wollek, Holbert, and more, was entrenched in IMSA's glorious 1970s and 1980s, won all of the biggest endurance races, has owned more Porsche 962s than anyone--all after getting his start as a hot rodder in Southern California. And as a master storyteller, Jeannette opens with the bizarre tale of owning the VW Bus painted by Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia...not once, but twice!

If you're a fan of Porsche, Jeannette's pure road and racing royalty.
