Brian welch was born in Columbus Ohio the Spring of 1970 to son of a Heavy equipment operator and a school teacher. Brian grew up on a 11 acre farm and began riding dirt bikes at a young age. When he was seven his father gave him a KX80 and he began racing hi older brother around on the farm.

As Brian got older , dirt bikes no longer satisfied his need for speed and moved to street bikes, than racing in the streets of Indianapolis. But soon after street racing he moved his loved to the more organized profession of drag racing is Honda blackbird XX. Since his first blackbird he since only owned Hayabusa’s and we donut see that changing anytime soon.
