Tony Cerovski (The Montana 500 Kid)

Tony is a Civil Engineer (PE), working for the Montana Department of Transportation. He designed bridges for 7.5 years and now does construction review, which he describes as a tough but enjoyable task. He is in his forties and enjoys T's, especially running in the Montana 500 mile endurance run.

His first T experience was in the 60's when he was 12. He said "My dad and I rebuilt a '23 touring from a rust bucket half burried in the dirt. He sold it about 10 years ago for $3000 (the motor was worth that alone in todays money!) I just had to have a T of my own. So I bought one from an elderly gentelman who used it in the 500. That was maybe 6 or 7 years ago. Since I have logged about 500 hours a year (shop time and computer analysis time) discovering what makes a T go faster and better, ie., for cross country racing with stock components!)"

Tony was President of the Montana Cross Country T Association for two terms in the mid '90's
