The Star Racing Supply Staff Lives & Breathes Racing!

Headshot_Ron_Sutton.jpg
Ron Sutton, Owner & Tech Guy:
Ron has wore many hats in his 35 years of racing, from drag racing, road racing and of course oval track in open wheel and stock cars.  From chassis designer, builder & crew chief ... to engine designer, builder & tuner ... Ron has built winning combinations in all genres of racing.

Star clients can be seen in the store getting advice on carb tuning, fuel characteristics, brake system design, shock valving, chassis tuning and more.  Ron is usually in the store Monday through Thursday each week to assist Star customers with technical help and parts.



Headshot_Susan_Kinnicutt.jpg
Susan Kinnicutt, Store Manager:
Quite simply Susan is a race nut. When she is not at the track or Star store, she is working on racing projects.  As Store Manager, Susan makes sure our prices are better than all other stores in California and keeps our inventory stocked up ... so when you need it, we got it. 

Susan absolutely "gets it" that racers want/need certain tire sizes & staggers.  She works hard to make sure we have all the sizes available from the tire manufacturers in stock. She works with each Star client to know their desired tire combinations.  Communicate directly with Susan on your tire & fuel needs ... and she will work hard for you ... to get you what you need ... when you need it.


Headshot_Randy_Chastain_2.jpg
Randy Chastain, Fabrication & Machine Shop Manager:
Randy is a racer's racer.  He can build or fabricate just about anything.  From sheet metal ... to welding .. to machine work ... Randy is known for doing high quality craftsmanship ... quicker than most.  Unique projects ... no problem.

From a vintage reproduction go kart to his hand built 33 Ford ... Custom Pit Carts ... and of course all of the Ron Sutton's Winner's Circle team race cars ... Randy & his crew do awesome fabrication and race car assembly work.



Headshot_Jason_Houghtaling.jpg
Jason Houghtaling, Tech Guy / Body Guy:
We were fortunate to recruit Jason from the East Coast, where he had quite a racing resume.  As a driver, Jason won a lot of dirt races in Modifieds & Late Models, including big shows on the World of Outlaws tour.

He also drove East Coast Whelen Pavement Modifieds, Late Models & NASCAR Craftsman Trucks.  After stepping out of the seat, Jason became a winning Crew Chief with Ron Sutton's Winner's Circle Modified Team. If you have seen the beautiful RSWC Modifieds, those bodies are Jason's handiwork.  For our pavement & dirt racers, Jason is a wealth of knowledge to make your car turn & go better.


Headshot_Jason_Rutherford.jpg
Jason Rutherford, Race Car Fabricator:
Jason had his own race car fabrication shop before coming to Star Race Cars.  We love the fact he understands the big picture, while being a master craftsman and caring about the small details.  Jason does a full range of TIG welding, MIG welding & tubing fabrication.

Racers are most impressed with his race car repair skills, making the car look like it was never crashed. We like his understanding of geometry and know-how to get race car front ends "dead nuts" ... not just close.

Tire Guys:
The reality is all Tire Guys turn over from time to time as "Tire Guy" tends not to be a "career position."  We work hard to hire guys that love racing and "get it" that you need certain tire sizes, mounted quickly. Current Star Racing Supply Tire Guys include, from left to right: Jon Kelly, Ivan Uribe & Tim Horn





Headshot_Kim_Sutton.jpg
Kim Sutton, Accountant:
Somebody has to pay the bills.  Kim is a professional accountant and works part time for Star Racing Supply handling payroll, accounting and accounts payable.  You will see her at the races with the Ron Sutton's Winner's Circle teams, as she follows and supports all the young drivers in the development program.  Anyone who has visited the team knows she also feeds everyone great food and goodies.





We are all here to serve you ...
Whether it is building you a complete race car ... repairing your wrecked race car ... helping you go faster with tech advice ... or simply getting you the tires, fuel & supplies you need for the weekend ... we want your business.  We are life long racers. We have been on both the buying & selling side ... and believe we "get it" ... that you want quality brands, parts specific to your car, in stock and at the lowest prices ... and hey, call us crazy, but some gold ole fashioned customer service.  We got it.  Come check us out yourself.  If we don't "get it" for what you want ... just tell us ... and we'll go the extra mile to earn your racing business.
