Tim Schultz began his racing career as a drag racer in 1977. After driving drag cars for a number of years, Schultz was asked to be on the team of a Bonneville Salt Flats car driven by “Big Daddy” Don Garlits in 1988. The following year, Schultz and fellow Lincolnite John MacKichan built their own salt flats racer, with Tim eventually being selected as the driver. During their first trip to Bonneville with the car, Schultz set a new D Gas Division record of nearly 249 miles per hour with a 302 cubic inch Chevrolet engine running on gasoline. In the two decades the MacKichan/Schultz Speedway Motors Streamliner raced at Bonneville, it set eight records, with two of them remaining unbroken to this day.
