Mike Lang began his motorsports career in 1973 in Ohio competing in SCCA Sports Car events. After years of successful SCCA competition, Mike then raced a CRA Sprint Car against many of non-wing dirt racing's greatest drivers at Ascot Park and other venues. From 1977 through 1985 Mike's day job was at Dan Gurney's All American Racers. During Mike's tenure, AAR produced many successful Indy racecars including the famous "Pepsi Challenger Eagle". These Eagle racecars were used by the AAR team and were also sold to other racing teams which competed in the Indianapolis 500 and other CART events. Mike's primary duty was to procure the raw materials and components for construction of these cars. He coordinated efforts between the engineering, machine shop, and fabrication departments. He also served as an over-the-wall pit crewmember at many races. After the 1985 racing season, Mike and Jeff Heywood left AAR to establish Coast Fabrication. Over the last quarter century, Coast Fabrication has become the most trusted source for the aerospace hardware and other related products used in the professional auto racing industry. Jeff Heywood, a Southern California native, began his motorsports involvement in 1955 at the age of 4 driving quarter midgets. Over the next 30 years, Jeff competed successfully throughout the United States driving midgets and sprint cars. During the 70s and 80s, Jeff was one of the top drivers racing non-wing sprint cars and midgets in CRA and USAC events around the country. Jeff learned the fabrication trade from racing legends such as Grant King and Bill Stroppe. In 1980 Jeff joined Dan Gurney's All American Racers where he worked for one of fabrication's all time greats, Phil Remington. Over the years, Jeff has built almost every conceivable racecar component and is a true craftsman. In January of 1986 Jeff joined Mike Lang to co-found Coast Fabrication. As lead fabricator, Jeff has turned out countless interesting and challenging projects and is the originator of the ultra lightweight racing muffler. Gary Donahoe began his auto racing career in the 1970's crewing on a wide variety of racing vehicles and doing some driving as well. In 1984, Gary joined Dan Gurney's All American Racers as a crew chief on the Toyota-sponsored racecars competing in the IMSA Camel GT Championship. In 1990, Gary was promoted to race team manager. He remained in that position throughout AAR's dominant years in GTP competition and the first 2 seasons of Toyota powered Indycars. After 14 years at AAR, Gary accepted a new position as the technical director for the Indy Lights Championship Racing Series. In late 2007 Gary re-joined with Mike and Jeff, his former AAR teammates, at Coast Fabrication. Gary performs administrative duties and uses his racing knowledge and experience to assist customers with ultra lightweight racing mufflers, ITG air filters, and fabrication projects.Gary is also our ISO Quality Manager.
