Rod started racing in 1984 in the
Broncos Class at Sunset Speedway after racing with his Dad since Rod was
5 years old until his Dad died in 1977 and always loved racing.
His first win was in 2005 in the B-Modified Class at Blackbird Bend
Speedway. Career highlights include his first win ever after 5
years of racing and a 18 year layoff while raising his children.
The thrill of racing for Rod is being
able to out drive some one on the track. His most exciting racing
moment was his first win with hopefully more to come. He's most
proud of just building his car from a bare chassis with all used parts
in his yard over the winter with no garage.
Rod's racing hero is Bill Elliott.
Of racing, Rod says, "You need to be at
the track during a great clean race and for 15 or 20 laps you do not
know who will win and feel the excitement in the stands when that
checkered flag waves. Life is short and sometimes it takes some
hard work and personal sacrifice to get what you want to
accomplish. We race in memory of my daughter, Misty Bronson
