Check out our little Q&A with Jason Sugden!
Q: How long have you worked at Kunzman & Associates?
A: 18 years
Q: What is your favorite part about your job?
A: We all have to work, but I’m one of the fortunate few that have a job that combines my career with my passion.
Q: What is an industry trend you’re most excited about for 2024?
A: The drag and drive type events … it’s incredible to watch a car run a 6.73 ¼ mile ET and then know that they are going to drive that car to the next track that is often over couple hours away!
Q: What is your current ride and/or project?
A: I have a 426 stroker SRT Jeep and have been chipping away at a ’76 Cutlass that I bought back in high school. But my REAL projects are any of the hot rods that come near the building! From Mike’s Nova that won the 2022 Championship at Milan Dragway, to our ‘shop truck’ – a 1969 C10 and even the occasional AMX.
The best thing about working on these hot rods is that I get the opportunity to install the products we represent and provide feedback to the manufacturers. I can also authentically share the experience with people at car shows and events.
Q: Tell us something fun about yourself!
A: I have two beautiful daughters that I’m very proud of, and growing up I played travel hockey. I’m not a very picky eater, as long as you keep the onions away!
