Gregg Spears is the team manager and President/Founder of Spears Enterprises/Spears Racing. He has 37 years of experience in the motorcycle industry, including 14 years with the San Jose Police Department as Lead Technician, 26 years as the leader in motorcycle maintenance in the industry, and 16 years of motorcycle roadracing support and team management with Spears Enterprises/Spears Racing, a dominant racing force in California. Spears Racing has earned several championships at the class, state, regional and national levels, and is recognized as one of the first Dynojet Power Commander tuning centers in the world.
Gregg graduated from high school in 1977 and went to work for the San Jose Police Department as its Lead Motorcycle Technician. It was soon apparent that Gregg's attention to detail was valuable to the industry, and Gregg decided to start working on motorcycles in his off-hours. Soon he found an overwhelming response to his talents, and in 1980 Spears Enterprises was born with $200.00 and a toolbox. Working from his carport and making house calls, Gregg soon found a need for a total motorcycle repair facility. In 1991, after leaving the San Jose Police Department, Spears Enterprises was opened in Campbell, California. Working as a sole proprietor, business was overwhelmed with customers and soon employees had to be hired to meet the demand of the workload. Long hours and relentless dedication to customers saw the business grow, and by 1995 Spears Enterprises expanded by opening a second location. By this time the business had established itself as the leader in police motorcycle maintenance, having as many as 12 different police department relying on Spears to meet their demands.
Working with specific roadracers, Spears Racing became a recognized force in AFM, CCS, WERA, AHRMA, LRRS and AMA competition. Spears Racing has also expanded their efforts to include several racing venues across the U.S. and into Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, winning numerous International Championships and continuing to expand their racing support in the years to come.
After several years of being away from his family four days a week, Gregg and wife Lisa decided it was time to move the business closer to their home in Manteca, California. Several weeks and loads later Spears Enterprises/Spears Racing was able to call Manteca their new home.
