During the transition period, S&W’s
management group will be responsible for “walking
the walk & talking the talk,” as Scott would
often say. The current group has been working side-by-side,
growing the company together, since 2010. Of those, half
of which have been together for 28 years. Like many great
leaders, Scott surrounded himself with a very diverse
and accomplished panel of industry professionals. The
8 member group not only possesses 217 years of combined
business experience, but also holds 212 years of multi-disciplined
racing experience. S&W’s management group members:
Michael Weney – Vice Pres. New Car Sales & Sr.

Gary Weney - Manager Precision Specialties, John Burke
- Engineering Manager, Rich Bilinski -Shipping Manager,
John Kelly - Purchasing Agent, Tom Hoosigian - Sales Manager
and Jill Canuso-Fazekas – Marketing Director. In
addition, they will gain support and guidance from S&W’s
founder and former President (1959-2005) Walter Weney,
also a drag racing legend.
The depth of S&W’s team does
not end there. The group’s initiatives are planned

skilled machinists, welders, fabricators, water jet specialists,
sales representatives, shipping clerks and office assistants.
They hold a combined and impressive 230 years of trade
experience, plus 236 years of multi-disciplined racing
experience. As with Scott, the team members' list of race
wins, championships and major accomplishments can’t

“Scott’s devotion to the sport
and its people is undeniable,” stated Michael Weney.
“Our family is thankful for 55 years of kind customers,
quality vendors and most importantly, the strong friendships
that have been formed.” S&W’s Terri Weney-Gdowik
added, “Although we are one great man down, our
team stands strong and united as we begin our next 55
