Speaker - Ron Sutton:
Skip this if you know my background. I’ve been racing for 38 years in 80+ classes of racing, most professionally, including drag, road course, karts & oval track. From low powered Formula Fords & F2000 cars to Mountain Motor drag racing … Midgets, Sprint Cars, Super Modifieds … to Trans Am/GT road race cars, Modifieds, Late Models & NASCAR Stock Cars. I’ve had the good fortune to work with & learn from winning pro teams & smart people in SCCA, USAC, SRL, NHRA, IHRA, IMSA, Camel GT, Indycar, Grand Am & NASCAR. Most of my modern experience is designing winning cars for road racing & oval track. The last 3 years, I have designed winning chassis & suspensions for autocross competitors.

I’ve built 205 cars for clients “hands on” as they say. Specifically, 64 tube chassis cars & 140+ sportsman race cars. I’ve had a chassis shop, parts store, track stores & engine R&D over the years. I’ve owned 79 race cars myself, including 9 full time race teams up until 2012. Most years I was at the track 3-4 days a week, 40+ weeks out of the year. As a driver, team owner, crew chief or driver coach I have 498 wins & 22 championships. I live & breathe competition, and I believe winning comes from doing your homework, testing, working hard, testing more, learning from books, classes & mentors … and testing more. I’m not the smartest guy at the track, but when he goes home I’m still there testing & learning. I figure I have 2500+ days of track testing under my belt.

I’m not an engineer. I’ve worked for them, with them & had several work for me … but we’re from different planets. One of my friends said, “Ron is a race car designer that did not go to engineering school, so he speaks car guy.” I’m a veteran car guy committed to staying on the leading edge of performance & racing technology. I like to think I’m pretty knowledgeable in my areas of expertise … but I learn every week, if not every day.

Speaking Style:
You may be surprised to know I’ve done hundreds of racing workshops in different genres. While I don’t claim to be a rock star, many people have said I’m pretty good at making technical learning engaging, fun & very interesting. I keep the workshop on track, but I’m not giving some rehearsed speech standing behind a podium. I’m moving around, talking with my participants, sharing stories, the occasional bad joke, discussing real world examples & answering questions right then, not later at the end.

Key Point:
I never sell in a workshop. Never. I educate. Even if I love a product, I don’t sell anyone. That’s just not my style. No one sells or “pitches” any products in my workshops. If you attend my workshop, you will walk away with valuable, powerful information you understand to help make your car handle better & more fun to drive. I guarantee it.

  1. April 22nd, Saturday, at Ridetech HQ in Jasper, IN / Before Cars & Cones Autocross Tour

I have attended Ron's workshop for the past 2 years. I really enjoyed both workshops. Ron is very good at explaining sometimes complex topics related to suspension tuning. The amount of knowledge I gained from these workshops is invaluable. The workshops are small enough in size that I was able to ask Ron every single question that popped into my head. I thought I knew a lot about suspension tuning before I took this class.... I was wrong. If you want to really understand how professional race teams build and tune suspension systems then this workshop is for you. I was able to take home what I learned and apply it to my pro touring 1970 Firebird build. I highly recommend this workshop.

I've attended Ron's 2 workshops at Las Vegas and will again this year. Over the years I have built up a Library of books I can refer to, but they are long on theory and too short on how to apply those theories to a real street/autox car. Ron's Seminars showed me how to apply the theory, avoid pitfalls, and gave me actual target numbers to set the car up. Ron is the only one spelling it out in plain English and handing you the tools to go faster.

It's a dangerous landscape out there with so many parts makers trying to convince you that what they are selling is the best. If you aren't armed with knowledge when you map out the project then you are rolling the dice and merely hoping that it works out. When you work with Ron you are provided with a full arsenal of knowledge and you no longer need to hope that your project will turn out the way you want. I've learned so much from Ron that I was confident I was on the right path for the entire car setup before anything was purchased. And now that it is together Ron still stands beside you in setup and dialing it in. This year will be my 3rd year attending and I very much look forward to what I will pickup in Vegas later this year!

I attended Ron's workshop last year in Las Vegas. What an awesome presentation. No matter what level of experience you have building a race car, Ron is able to speak in car guy terms that everyone can understand. I am involved in several types of motorsports and his information is useful in all of them. Look forward to attending again.

I attended Ron's workshop last year in Vegas. I've been reading all of his threads for years. There were still a few concepts that I didn't fully understand. During the workshop Ron was great about answering questions and really making sure you understand all of the material. I can't wait to catch this years workshop. I'm sure my car wouldn't perform nearly as well as it does if it wasn't for his advice.

I also attended Ron's Las Vegas workshop last year and was very glad I did. So much in depth information covered in one day it was amazing, but never confusing, because Ron makes sure everybody is enjoying the experience and following along allowing an open dialogue. I am hoping to attend again this year to keep adding to my knowledge.

The only drawback to these workshops is now if I am underperforming in the car, everybody is going to know it's the driver. Lol
