You get handed your first wrench at seven, and by 14 you’re swapping engines in the car you race. It gets in your blood. Not just mechanics. Building. Dominick kept building, starting his business at 24, taking out a mortgage on a broken down and abandoned train station in Pine Plains. Between fixing cars, he fixed sheetrock and plumbing.

These days, that building has four commercial spaces in addition to Factory Lane Automotive, and the racecar Dominick works on belongs to his youngest son. When you build, or rebuild, for a living, it helps to have the right tools at hand. And over the years, one of Dominick’s most valuable tools has been his bank.
