Jean Genibrel, the owner of APPLIEDSPEED.com, has a long racing pedigree dating back to Dan Gurney's All-American Racing Team in the Bobby Unser era. From there, the future led to deep involvement in Circle Track, Drag Racing, Off-Roading, Road Racing, and Karting.

Jean Genibrel wrote several books on Sprint Cars, Midgets, Stock Cars, Karting, and four-cylinder race cars.

Jean authored a series of articles in Circle Track Magazine on "Building the Mini Stock." Later, he penned a series for Sports Car Magazine on the construction of the SCCA GT3 Ford Probe racing car and its racing in the SCCA NASPORT series. Jean built the cars and the engines with Ford Special Vehicles Operation (SVO), Ebeling Engineering, Eslinger Engineering, and Speedway Engineering. Genibrel is the world's most-read karting book author, with over 50,000 copies sold globally.

In recognition of his contributions to automobile racing and automotive thermal management books and magazines, the American Automobile Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association (AARWBA) admitted Genibrel in 1999, from which he later received two awards in the book and magazine categories. In 2014, Jean became a Motor Press Guild (MPG) member.
