Reserve Member Spotlight:
Some folks never slow down—Jerry Post’s racing days are far from over!
Nancy and Jerry Post may have built their home here at The Reserve in 2004, but they have continued a fast-paced lifestyle of traveling around the U.S. fueling Jerry’s extreme hobby and racing career.
Jerry has been racing for 20 years with his Post Racing crew chief (and best friend), Howard Imhof, and his wife Nancy cheering him on. “I have been a ‘Motorhead’ since age 14 when I hopped up a motor scooter. I have owned a number of hot rod cars over the years, and I like to wrench the cars almost as much as driving,” says Jerry. He has built four of his own cars and currently runs in a class called American Sedan, racing highly modified Camaros and Mustangs—usually around 450 horsepower and similar to the Trans Am series in the 60s.
Jerry has won many races in his career, ranking as high as 3rd nationally and 10th in 2011. He has experienced several wrecks and even taken a trip to the hospital, but was never badly hurt. He and Nancy are still enjoying life in the fast lane and have even encouraged some fellow Reserve Members to join in the action…as spectators, for now!
It’s obvious that Jerry enjoys every minute of his time on the track and in the garage, and he wears his years of experience like a badge of honor, referring to himself as “The Old Guy.” And he doesn’t appear to have plans to slow down any time soon: “You can play golf, ride horses, go fishing, geocache, take your pick! Everyone needs a hobby, and this is mine. I am the oldest in the class but still kick butt, and working out with Lauren at The Reserve fitness facility is a great help keeping me in shape to drive!”
