Sprintcar Racing

As a family of avid motor sport enthusiasts, we are also involved in Sprintcar racing. The Highrace 24 hour towing team is a Sprintcar racing team that work hard all year at our family owned business, P & K Ruhs Automotive so we can race, and burn the midnight oil maintaining the sprintcars and preparing them for the coming races.

Each member of the family take on a multitude of tasks every race night to ensure everything is done to prepare the car and the driver Josh for each race. Father Peter is the crew chief, mother Kathy works as the car presentation manager and son Isaac is the media manager and helps with the maintenance.

Each team member shows incredible flexibility and would help each other in their roles, as all have an extended knowledge of the cars. This is due to the fact that Josh and Peter are both fully qualified mechanics at the family owned business, and have taken Isaac under their wings as an apprentice automotive mechanic. Kathy is no stranger to grease either, often lending a mechanical hand throughout the night.
