At age 12, Kevin Napier got a 1979 Camaro. Only recently did he have time to start working to restore it, but it was a main reason he was encouraged to start his own auto-repair business.
“That’s one of the main things that got me into it, that car. I worked on it with my dad for a while, and it got a little rough, so we decided to fully pull it apart and just start from scratch and go from there,” he said.
Napier opened Edge Motorsports at 235 Industry Parkway Suite D in Nicholasville on April 29. The business celebrated its grand opening at the AmStar movie theater, coinciding with the opening of the movie “Fast Five.”
“I’ve been working on cars since I was 12,” Napier said. “I was recently laid off ... I thought it was a good time to start my own business, that way I don’t have to worry about being laid off, and it seemed like a good decision.”
