Janke Racing Engines

I don't know if any of you have ever dealt with Jerry Janke in San Antonio, but if you have you know he's a good guy and can make a helluva lot of horsepower. Just over a year ago he suffered a stroke, and while he was still comatose many of his "friends" and employees decided to basically loot the shop for all it was worth. The doctors said he would probably not function mentally the way he used to, and that he would definitely never walk again.

Well, I just wanted to let you know that he is back 100%. His mind is fine (well at least as good, if not better than it was before LOL), and he is walking better and better each day. When things like this happen, you really find out who your true friends are and it's sad that there are generally a lot less of them than you think.

Anyway, this is not meant to be an advertisement for him in any way. His shop is fully functional again, and they should finish installing the new dyno next week. If someone wants to know how to contact him, they can e-mail me. I just wanted to cross post this on a few boards, because a suprisingly large number of people I have talked to thought he was dead.

Thanks for your time.

Jerry Janke did some NHRA Pro Stock racing in the late 70's and early 80's. I have known him all my 32 years. He built more than a few engines for my father's Thactor Pull truck, and my old Drag car. I learnd a lot from the guy. It's good to have him back at the shop. If I can find the picture of his old car I'll post it here.
