Shane is a pleasure to work with.  If his passion for racing, work ethic and attitude is any measurement of the success he will achieve, all I can say is it will be good to see him at the top!!!!!!

Shane is a very talented young man. I have enjoyed watching Shane grow not only as a racecar driver but as a person as well. On top of maintaining a college education, his passion for racing has made him a top prospect in the racing community. Being around Shane and working with him at the races is awesome. The care he has for the equipment he drives is phenomenal. The knowledge he has taken in about the race cars is from paying attention to detail as he has grown into the great driver he is. I wish nothing but the best for Shane in his racing adventures and consider it an honor to be a part of his success!

I can honestly say as a Sprint Car Team Owner, Shane Golobic has everything he needs to be successful at any kind for Motorsports venue.  As a owner of the GetSOM Sports #9J wing sprint car, Shane drove with respect of our equipment and extreme determination to win every event possible. Shane's communication skills also helped in maintaining our marketing partners throughout our championship winning year. I am proud to have Shane Golobic as a driver and friend.

Shane is the type of driver who lets his on track success do the talking.  He routinely jumps into different types of cars - Midgets, Sprints, wing and non-wing, dirt or asphalt - and always finds a way to get to the front.  Don't let his quiet nature fool you: Shane is the driver you want in your car when the pressure is on!"

We have known Shane and his family for many years and have witnessed the amazing support they have for each other.  Our son normally drives our car and when he has been unavailable, Shane has always been the obvious choice to drive our equipment. Shane is very a well-spoken young man with ambition and drive that makes him an asset to any car owner.  He has a natural ability to understand the racecar and he adapts very easily from not only any given situation on the track but from any type of motorsports racing.  If we ever needed a driver in the future, our first call will be to Shane as he always does a great job for us!!

Shane is an aggressive, calculating young driver that i can't wait to work with again soon!! So impressed with his ability to jump from a wing sprint car/non wing sprint car/ to a midget, such a well rounded driver that is so much fun to race with.

“When we hired Shane it was based solely off what we had heard about him through the grapevine, in fact we had never seen him even race! We took a gamble on Shane and it was the right bet, he is very easy to work with, focused, hardworking and willing to get his own hands dirty to get the job done. His love for the San Francisco 49’S would be my only fault I do see ”

What can I say about Shane Golobic? I have known the Golobic family and Shane for over 15 years and have had the pleasure of being able to work with Shane through just about every aspect of his racing career from the time he was 8 years old. We took Shane to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and cleaned house in Quarter midgets, to being a part of his fist sprint car win in Lawrenceburg, IN at 15, to having Shane drive for our newly formed National Midget Team at the Chili Bowl and finishing on the podium on his preliminary night and making the Chili Bowl "A" main. As great of a time and the success we have had racing together over the last 15 years the thing that I appreciate most is the great young man he has grown up to be. I am so proud to be a small part of his life! And oh yea he is one hell of a race car driver !!
