Rod began his racing career in his late teens, building and racing anything Chevy, even taking the family's late '70's motorhome down the track on a bet (he won by the way).
Having given up racing cars, in the early 2000's Rod, once again feeling the need for speed, decided to try out bike racing. At the shop, Rod, Mike, Marten and Skeeter designed and built the very same bike he is racing today. Since racing Harley Davidsons was virtually unheard of in Atlantic Canada at that time, the team really had no one local to lean on for advice.
