MASON, Mich. - The business formerly known as Grove's Motorsports in Mason is under new ownership and has the new name Fastlane Powersports.

Former operations manager Jeff Giles is the dealer principal, and he said he plans to bring in new products and service professionals.

"The former owner of this location owned multiple stores, and I was the operation manager for all of them," Giles told Capital Gains Media. "He was wanting to retire, so we came to an agreement."

Giles thinks the time is right because the economy is getting better. "We had to survive some very tough times, and I truly believe the last couple of years have shown that we're moving in the right direction," he said. "Not everyone survived, so there's a lot less competition nowadays." 

Fastlane Powersports has 10 employees, including three new hires, and Giles plans to add two or three more positions in the near future. He has already completed some interior renovations on the store, and plans to start on exterior renovations soon.
