In the fall of 2005, Joey McColm, Joey’s Dad Kevin McColm, and Joey’s second Dad Frank Millman decided to move up into the semi-professional ranks of stock car racing in Ontario. At the same time, Joey was beginning his engineering degree, where he would meet colleague Phil Fracz. Leigh-Ann Gourlie, Joey’s high school sweetheart and now fiancé, would assume the role of Team Coordinator early. Ken Foster, a family friend and common fixture in the race shop was a natural fit to help the team where he could. Later in 2006 , the call came to race in the professional ranks of NASCAR Canada. Ryan Weiss would join the team and would bring aboard JP Clost in 2007. Family friend Rick Boucher, Ed Wrong, and Mike Tucker would join the team over the developing years. Darrell Eacott and Tammy Phillips, well known custom diecast builders in Canada, would be asked to join the team in 2011.
Joey has this to say about Frank:
Frank is also the team truck driver, which has brought lots of excitement and stories over the years from driving a 53 foot trailer where it shouldn’t be by mistake, to blowing a tire and getting stranded in the fast lane on the 401, and even getting rescued by a mountaineer in West Virginia. We could sit, tell stories, and laugh for hours!
