Who are the Sons?

Sons of Speed was founded in 2015 by three lifelong friends who all inherited their love of cars from their fathers. Director of Marketing Chris Balmes' dad was the driveway hotrodder who spent every weekend building up his own ‘56 Chevy pickup truck and showing off its custom 327 Corvette engine. Chief Editor Paul Herrold’s father was the drag racer who drove drag-strip Hemi-powered cars for Dodge and still drives a monster Hemi Challenger today. While Director of Operations Brendan Appel’s old man was the auto aficionado who would attend every car show he could find and would explain, in full detail, everything there is to know about classic cars to anyone who would listen.


Today, Sons of Speed carries that same passion and excitement for cars as their fathers did - from hot laps at the racetrack to street drives on a local boulevard, the aim is to bring their love of cars into everything they do. They are the car enthusiast for car enthusiasts.
