Meet the Good-Win Racing Team
We are a family of Mazda enthusiasts. We race what we sell, and evaluate all our parts in street use, autocross and track events. We live in sunny San Diego, and while we spend most of our free time out on the track, you might also find us designing new products, or enjoying the surf. We've been in business since the late 90's so we can answer pretty much any question you have about your Mazda.
Our team includes several Goodwins and extended family, depending on the season and event. Meet the core team:
Brian Goodwin, Founder/CEO
Welcome to Good-Win Racing, the hobby that became my life. My favorite bedtime story as a small child was "Go, Dog. Go!" by P.D.Eastman... I just loved the dogs racing cars. I was racing Go-Karts as soon as I was able, then came motorcycles and cars. My first Mazda Miata arrived in the early 90s and it was a revelation after owning and racing a succession of Italian and other European sports cars. I was ecstatic to finally discover a quality sports car that didn't leak, catch fire, or break down constantly when driven under demanding conditions! My 1994 Mazda Miata racked up well over 100,000 miles of combined use on and off the race track and in autocross racing. Never once was I left stranded along the side of the road or race track. In 2004, we purchased a stock Mazda RX8 and modified it to enhance its performance on the street, the race track and for autocross use. Since that time the fleet has expanded and included another 94 Miata and 5 Miata MX5's (three 2006, one 2007, one 2012).
Odd fact about Brian: Brian LOVES milk, in particular chocolate milk. You will always find chocolate milk in our fridge and with us when we race. It serves as a great recovery drink by providing quick carbs and protein to replenish muscles and rehydrate.

Andi Goodwin, CFO & Marketing
When I married Brian I was fascinated with his cool cars and the fun he had autocrossing and on the track, but never considered it as something I could do. Once I became part of the Good-Win Racing team I just had to try it and boy am I hooked! Talk about an adrenaline rush! I discovered a passion for racing, car control and general FUN driving.
My first Miata really changed my entire view on cars and why we have them. Before my Miata I thought driving was just to get from A to B, but now I just love to put the top down and go for a drive just for the thrill of it.
When I am not out driving you can find me with a group of friends enjoying a good meal and fine wine.
Odd fact about Andi: I have super small narrow feet; Brian says I stole them from a 6 year old! However, they happen to be perfect for driving race cars, who knows maybe I was born to race all along.

Brad Goodwin, Shop Manager
I drive a Laguna Blue 94 Miata. I started with an autocross Miata and slowly evolved it into my canyon carving toy. My Miata driving experience started in autocross many years ago but I currently enjoy more time on canyon and mountain roads, often taking full day and multi-day trips just to drive some of the best roads in Southern California. Amber and I manage our retail store and shipping center in San Diego, California.
Odd fact about Brad: Brad has a history of selecting places to live based on the curvy road getting to and from the house.
