Sid owned the cars in the mid 1980’s through the 90’s that won feature races at Genesee Speedway, Tri-County, Perry Raceway, and all three tracks in the Niagara Region with triumphs at Humberstone, Merrittville and Ransomville with Mike Jeffery behind the wheel. While Mike drove for Sid, he earned the 1988 DIRT Rookie of the Year. Current crew chief for Super DIRTcar Series driver Larry Wight and former crew chief for Billy Decker Scott Jeffery got his start by turning wrenches on the Mike Jeffery racers.
