There are roughly 11 of us that race or have something to do with XETEX Racing. The family: Charles and Martha Greenlaw, Aaryn and Annie (Greenlaw)Perry , Scott Greenlaw, and James Greenlaw. Add in some excellent friends: Jim Best, Justin Baas, and Les Hilgers, recent pit crew and drivers Miles and Todd. Put us all together and you have the makings of a totally non-profit race team; It's true, we haven't made a dime.
We all started racing slowly together. Charles and Jim G.
started racing Martha's 1932 Ford 5-window. You can read
about their "exploits' in the RACING section of this
website under El Mirage. Charles always had the dream of
running the mustang to unheard of speeds, but you have to
start somewhere... The rest of us started coming out to
race in 2004 when Charles decided to test his new Mustang
racecar on the salt at the Bonneville Speedway.
So Where Do
We All Live?
Charles and Martha Greenlaw live in Seguin, TX and the
racecars reside there as well during the off-season. They
are members of the San Diego Roadster Club (SDRC), which is
a member club of the Southern California Timing Association
(SCTA), and members of the New Braunfels Area Car Club, a
local club that puts on a spectacular Swap Meet every
James Greenlaw lives nearby in New Braunfels, with his wife
Emily and their 2 kids, Zoee and Deegan. They recently
moved here from Showlow, AZ.
Scott Greenlaw recently moved from Northern California back
to Baltimore MD with his wife, Johanna, and their two sons
-- Adam and Zack. He is still in the Coast Guard. Made
Warrant Officer a couple of years ago and is now
contemplating retirement. One of these years, anyway.
Annie (Greenlaw) and Aaryn Perry have vacated our nation
for foreign shores. They lived in China in a place called
Tianjen Economic Development Area (TEDA) for five years.
Both of their daughters (Piper and Seraphine) were born
there. They recently moved to the booming metropolis of
Trutnov, Czech Republic. This is a small town about 90
minutes drive from Prague, close to the border with Poland
and nestled in the foothills of a ski area. They are
currently trying to learn enough Czech to get by since
almost no one speaks English there. Piper has transitioned
from a Chinese pre-school to a Czech pre-school with,
apparently, few problems. Kids are so adaptable.
