Meet Phil Stuart, Car Chief

Phil Stuart, car chief for Kyle Wurtzel racing lives in Brantford, Ontario. Originally from Binbrook in Ontario, Canada, Phil is a machinist, welder, and fabricator at Chatterson Fabrication.

Phil became interested in racing after a conversation with his high school guidance counselor. She phoned a local drag racer (Paton Racing) when she realized he had an interest in building race engines and he began volunteering with them. He stayed with them as they moved from an alcohol funny car, to a nitro funny car, to a top fuel dragster.

In 2004, Phil began working for Bruce Litton and has been with him ever since, periodically helping other teams. Phil loves to learn all of the aspects of tuning and assembly and to date, his most memorable experience has been being a part of the 2007 IHRA Top Fuel Championship Team with Bruce Litton.
