The one and only Steve Probst, father of Jeff and Kevin. Now in his early 80’s. Instrumental in the development of off road racing in the Midwest. Should be in an Off Road Hall of fame !!

One of the first serious women racers in the Midwest, Kathy Leonard, She was married to another pioneering off road racer, Bob Leonard. I met Kathy when I was a junior in high school. I invited her to present to my senior class for alternative roles for women in 1976. After retiring from driving, she became a key member of 4x4 Unlimited, the club responsible for running The Memorial Day 100 in Lake Geneva, WI. Sadly, we lost her to cancer.
