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.
