Rod Colburn is the owner of Colburn Motor Sports – a team in the IRA Wingless Sprint Car series. Rod has been involved in racing since he was a child, first as a fan and then as a crew member. At the age of 50 he decided to race himself and start his own 1 car team. In his first season at the age of 51 and against younger competition he was rooking of the year and was 9th in points. Rod has since retired from racing to build his race team into one of the most respected teams in the series. His goal is to give younger drives a chance to succeed, something he wished he would have had. The team is now 3 drivers, 8 crew members, and 5 sprint cars in just 4 years. The team is sponsored by: Clutch Energy Drink, Harley-Davidson, Heiser Automotive Group, Zein Mechanical, 1-800 GOT-JUNK, LD’s BBQ, Next Eclectic, and Elco Truck Rental. Rod has taken a hobby that he loves and turned it into a thriving business.
