At the tender age of six, Rozycki remembers a brand new 1967 Shelby GT350 rumbling down the street and knew it was one bitchin' ride...which was all it took for him to be hooked. As a teenager he had the opportunity to eat, sleep, and breath Ford cars with Wayne Curry for quite a few years doing the SAAC routine of road racing, drag racing and car shows.
Road racing won out; it was where all the action was. Back then it was always a thrill for teens to run those old cars up, down, and around the hilly backroads of Missouri - way before it was taboo.
Since then, Rozycki has raised 3 boys in the racing world and used them as pit crew on his No. 39 1965 Ford Mustang for as long as he could. This car was purchased back in 1976 and transformed over the years to what it is today. Although the car is loud and all show, it has earned the dubious nickname of “The Coaster” with HVR crowd.
Rozycki joined HVR in 2015 because this group of racers always has fun together, regardless. He was elected / duped into the position of HVR President back 2018 and has been having more fun ever since.
“Jimbo” Macaulay hails from Warrensburg, Missouri, and drives the #23 Unicorn Corvette. He started vintage racing in 2001 and joined HVR following his move to America's Heartland in 2014. Retired from the military and living on government cheese, when he’s not wrenching on his race car and other sketchy old cars, he’s chasing his four daughters around town, and his crew chief wife Kris around the house.
At only two days old, Russell was brought home from the hospital in his dad's '68 Shelby GT-500 and has been a self-proclaimed "Shelby Guy" ever since. He joined HVR back in 2010 and loves to talk vintage Fords and vintage racing, but all he does is talk. This guy's got cars and he's got parts...maybe someday they'll all be assembled into an actual running vehicle and put on a track. Until then, Dickey remains HVR's resident pencil-pusher.
When he's not dealing with club administrivia and being a burr under the saddle of other board members, he spends his time in the peaceful suburbs of Kansas City, Missouri, with his wife and two sons - working on their cars, assorted zero turn mowers, and doing something called "digital marketing" instead of building his vintage race car.
