Ryan Schnackenberg
In 2000, owner Ryan Schnackenberg purchased this car new as a daily driver. The same year he started autocrossing locally. The car did not stay in stock form long. In late 2003, the Focus began its long transformation into a true Street Modified contender. Among the major updates for the season 2004 were: a complete custom designed suspension, wheels, brakes, and transmission. In 2005, significant motor modifications from Ford Racing became the primary focus, and continued the project evolution to new levels. Now Ryan and his team not only compete regionally, but divisionally and nationally!
Jason Kolk
Before the 2004 season began, Kolk joined up with Schnackenberg to help bring the Street Modified Focus to the next level. His primary task has been to spearhead the suspension tuning and development. Throughout the season, the car's setup changed weekly with the team spending hours on the setup pad before each weekend taking alignments and corner weighting into their own hands. Thanks to the opportunity for two people to campaign the same car in autocross, the pair provided strong competition within the team to supplement the strong competition from the outside. It's amazing how much a person can improve when they see the same car go faster then they just drove.
Ryan is a good friend of mine...
