JACOB TURNER- Owner/Lead Technician
Jacob is from Corryton, TN, a small community in the northeast corner of Knox County. He is a huge Vol Football fan, and has not missed a home game since he was 10 years old. Jacob became heavily involved in Motocross racing at 13 years old and that is was peaked his interest in fixing things. He self taught himself quite a bit about fixing motors on his motorcycles and decided to pursue a career in the field. Determined to succeed, he graduated the top of his class in the fall of 2013 from Wyotech Daytona. His lowest test score while in school was a 97. His degree is in motorcycle technology with an emphasis on Off Road Power, which includes PWCs, ATVs, Dirtbikes, and Side by Sides. Once returning back to Tennessee, he found a job at Topside Powersports. He worked his way up, and when the owner decided to sell in the spring of 2015, Jacob took the leap, bought the business, and has never looked back. He is very passionate about his work and his business and during the peak summer months you can often find him turning wrenchs into the early morning hours.
