At 125 mile per hour John Shewbrooks of Waverly, Ohio, spent decades competing on the American Power Boat Association Inboard Racing Tour throughout the United States and Canada. He also traveled to New Zealand and Australia for international competition. With his 2.5 litre modified inboard hydroplane, Sho nuff, John and crew would travel 25,000 miles per year in quest for their several wins and championships. In 2007, John entered Three Quarter (TQ) Midget racing as a rookie, competing weekly in Indiana and Illinois from May to September. In 2010, John began racing 410 cubic inch wing sprint cars. Having also driven an Indy Car at Chicagoland Speedway and a NASCAR style stock car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in driving schools, he focuses his racing close to home in his sprint cars. John raced four sprint cars, numbered A67, A76, A79 and A97 out of his race shops in Waverly, Ohio, but now runs only the A79 car. John no longer drives but still enjoys the thrill of competition. World of Outlaw veteran Brandon Wimmer is the team's regular driver. John's car numbers are a tribute to his dad, Jack Shewbrooks, as these numbers were on his dad's many race boats.

In 2010, John began racing sprint cars. Several times he fielded multiple cars and would be seen on tracks racing against his other cars.
Driving school at Chicagoland Speedway was a challenge at 160 MPH. You could really feel the speed and the bumps over the track tunnel. The wall was intimidating.
Another driving school this time in a NASCAR style stock car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was unbelievable. The track was as smooth as a pool table at 140 MPH.
