Who We Are

Top Wrench is a 501(c)3 non-profit drug-free vocational program developed for high school students as an introduction to team building and basic technical skills as they prepare for careers in the  automotive field. We mainly serve students in East Tennessee.


Top Wrench was founded by Air Force veteran Joe Marshall.  Since the first competition took place in 1991, thousands of vocational students have been positively influenced by our program.
