Jon Kaase, 64, started competing in drag racing while still at high school. He moved to Atlanta, Georgia at the beginning of 1977 to work for Dyno Don Nicholson and by year end celebrated the move by claiming the NHRA Pro Stock title.
In November 1979 in Norcross, Georgia, the degreed engineer formed his own company, Jon Kaase Racing Engines. Later in 1998 he designed a purpose-built shop and moved his business to Winder, Georgia, from where the company operates today.
Around 2007, the firm expanded its operations into the hot rod market when they introduced the Kaase Boss Nine—a high performance engine series developed from Ford’s big-block 385-series and equipped with hemi heads. Kaase's shop is recognized as the world leader in big block Ford engines and components.
Jon Kaase has created race engines that won 16 Drag Racing Pro Stock championships, succeeded in winning the Engine Masters Challenge six times, and has presided over the company that bears his name for 36 years. Miss Geico is very proud to have Jon and his team on board.
