Ed Green attended his first sprint car race in 1948 which led to a lifelong interest in racing. He built race car engines. In 1969 Ed decided he needed to say closer to home and chose to open an auto repair shop with his cousin. In 1973, he opened his own business known as E & M Garage in South Plainfield, NJ.
Ed and Mary moved to Deming in January 1985 and opened E & M Truck Repair on East Pine in June, 1985. The business was sold in October, 2003.
This interest in auto racing, especially sprint cars, has never waned and will always be an important port of Ed Green’s life.
