Tim Suddard

Born in 1960 in Wareham Massachusetts, Tim began restoring cars at the age of 14 and still has the first car he restored, a 1929 Ford that his grandfather had sold brand new.

Shortly after graduating Stetson University in 1982, he started Grassroots Motorsports, a magazine geared towards regular people who enjoyed fixing up and playing with common, readily available sports cars. This success lead to the formation of Classic Motorsports, which has become America’s largest publication catering to classic sports car enthusiasts.

Tim’s event business hosts the Classic Motorsports Mitty, one of the oldest and largest vintage races in America, the Ultimate Track Car Challenge and the $201X Challenge series of low cost events.


Brock Yates, Jr.

Brock Yates, Jr., son of the famed automotive journalist, has been plagued with cars since his earliest days. He was a veteran of the first Cannonball in 1971 at age 14 and has participated in nearly every Tire Rack One Lap of America since it’s inception in 1984.

After a less-than-stellar racing career, he has assumed the leadership of One Lap now celebrating its 36th year traveling around the country and racing on America’s greatest tracks. He lives in Southeastern Pennsylvania as an unlikely farmer with his wife, Cyndy, daughter Leda and a host of horses, dogs, cats and of course, cars and trucks littering the property.
