Edge Motorsports was created in 1987 by previous owner. We purchased the company in 2020. Being a driver in this sport since I was 15 has created a passion for this sport. I have driven for over 30 years in Canada and the USA. I held the position of head tech with Edge since 2015, meaning that I inspected the vehicles to be adhering to the rules and safety precautions before competing. Now that I am semi-retired, I still love being part of the action and a great opportunity to continue being a part of it was a no brainer. Seeing as how I have now been on both sides of the blocks, I feel that I bring an important perspective to continue to support the drivers and generations to come. For some this has become a very competitive sport and, in some cases, a “profession”. Where us, at Edge Motorsports want it to continue to be a fun sport and not so complex. Supporting local fairs is important as generations to come are not quite so interested. Since Covid and pandemic restrictions, this sport is suffering to make the come back to what it used to be with driver challenges. The cost of buying, building, travelling, etc. has really deterred a lot of people. But the stands, its standing room only for the most part, people want to be out, see and enjoy activities. Our daily activities include corresponding with fairs about events, drivers about rules and always listening to all sides to try and make this sport better and lasting. At our events we have several components that make it as successful as we can.
