R&E Racing

By day, Coast CEO Eric R. Gustafson’s life revolves around beef and pork. On weekends, he’s “Goose” – the titular head of the R&E Racing team, a fixture and perennial winner on the PDRA and NMCA drag racing circuits. Competitive racing is in literally in Coast’s DNA (“R&E” being short for Ron and Eric, the late patriarch of the family), with driver Jason Lee and a team of automotive aces feeding Coast’s 3500-horsepower, record-shattering ’69 Noonan Hemi ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro. As the saying goes, “Goose Cooks.”

Coast Packing’s R&E Racing is known for hitting the strip with a real screamer – a ’69 Noonan Hemi ProCharger Pro Mod Camaro, which continues to shatter records at stops on the NCMA and PDRA drag racing circuits. Powering the Camaro is a crew seasoned in pushing the machine to speeds in excess of 210 mph: Jason Lee, Cameron Hensley, John Urgo, Patrick Barnhill, Tim Lyons, Nick “Dumbo” Strohbeen, Ben Liedel, the team at Lyons Custom Motorsports and Coast CEO Eric R. “Goose” Gustafson.
