Feature Interview: Ron Sutton
Well, the very first event of the year is just around the corner! In this episode we touched base on everything that happens from a scheduling perspective at the first event (don’t forget that everyone will do the “fire drill” procedure test), and then had our long time friend and show sponsor Ron Sutton on for a feature interview. Ron revealed his 2018 Workshop tour topic line and schedule in this show, and (as with all years) it’s sure to sell out at every single event.
Ron’s involvement in USCA really began back with his interest in “dabbling” with the Pro Touring muscle car market. Frankly, he’d spent his entire career with real race cars and understood that world well….but our fun street cars and amazingly fun people drew him over our way. His ginormous parts catalog launch last fall has been the “Bible of Speed” for many in the series as well. Simply put, if you want to go fast with neutral handling, powerful, well balanced, and long lasting cars, Ron can help you at literally any budget level you wish. Every single piece in the catalog was hand selected and configured to Ron’s exact specifications.
Thanks for the interview Ron – and good luck to all this season!
-Rob & Jimi
