About Us

 

Roger Kraus Racing started business in 1972 by selling and servicing race tires at the race tracks in Northern California. Since then Roger Kraus Racing has serviced every SCCA regional and national race in the local SCCA region. Our company has also serviced Pro Races that include IMSA, Trans Am, Can Am, F-5000, NHRA Drag and Midget races. Roger Kraus also worked at early F-1 and Winston Cup races held in California. We presently service between 22 to 25 races each year. The yearly schedule includes SCCA regionals & nationals, SCCA vintage, CSRG, American Le Mans, Pro Mazda, Historic F-1, Wine Country and the premier Monterey Historic race.

Some race weekends include selling up to 500 tires, our record is over 600 which was done at the 2006 Pro Mazda race. At many races we mount and balance up to 90 more tires than we sell. RKR has serviced races in California, Arizona and Nevada.
