Thrust into the powersports industry through riding, racing and working within various powersports dealers for over 20 years, Strangfeld has always taken an active role in this industry. This included working every facet of the dealership, including selling V-Twin motorcycles in the late ’90s.  His industry experience eventually led him to the LeMans family.

Strangfeld started his time with LeMans as the Moose Racing sales manager back in 2000. Strangfeld then served as a territory sales rep from 2004 to 2020.  In January of 2020, Strangfeld was named a Parts Unlimited national sales manager. His sales management and team lead experience along with his personal enthusiasm for the Motor Co. products, make for a seamless transition to the Drag Specialties position.


Strangfeld stated, “I have had the fortune to work within LeMans, in various capacities, for the past 22 years. I am honored to be working with the Drag Specialties team and our valued dealer network. I look forward to working with the entire LeMans family to continue growth and brand momentum for Drag Specialties.”

Jeff Derge, vice president of sales for LeMans, shared, “This is a bittersweet announcement; we all miss Jim Matchette every day. Jim and I were planning for his retirement and shared a common vision for the future of Drag Specialties. John is a key part of that vision, and the entire Drag team is excited have him leading them forward.”
