Welcome to this episode of Vintage Racing Podcast, featuring Jeff Kline, a hugely talented and successful race car driver who started in club racing in the 1960’s, and then quickly established himself as a skillful, winning racecar driver, which led to sponsorships and driving roles with factory teams in a wide range of racing series.
