“No one said life is fair,” my dad said many times during my upbringing. Sometimes things happen that are out of your control. It’s just how things go. For MV Performance’s Tim Matherly, a shop fire in the fall of 2016 set him back for quite a while. When that happened it wasn’t unusual to see the drag racing community come together to help Tim, his wife Lisa, and business partner Shane “Biggie Me” Cannon get back on their feet. However, with his Coyote Stock Mustang down for the count as a result of the fire, friend and fellow racer Craig Baldwin stepped in to get Tim back in the game. Here’s an interview we did with Tim over the weekend at the 2017 NMRA Spring Break Shootout at Bradenton Motorsports Park.
