I’m Alan Rudolph, President/Co-Owner of Speedsportz Racing Park and the Alan Rudolph Racing Academy. As a multi-time national karting champion, I also have experience in open wheel formula cars, sports cars, and an LMP2 at Petite Le Mans. I’d say I’m best known for my dominance in shifter karts, and by winning the Rock Islands “King of the Streets” title an unprecedented five times. In 2009, I took on the position of President of Stars of Karting and then in 2011, I became Superkarts! USA’s (SKUSA) Director of Competition.
Having spent nearly 16 years at The Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, I’m continuously working with racers on advanced techniques, as well as sharing the sport of karting with people who just like to have fun. Additionally, I’ve had the honor of working with various charitable organizations such as United Cerebral Palsy, United Technical Institute Foundation, the Lynn St. James Foundation and the Rotary Club of Arizona on many different karting centered events and fundraisers.
My real passion is traveling the world to driver coach children and adults, such as Austin Versteeg, Chase Elliot (son of Bill Elliot), Sabre Cook, Cole Glasson, and many others. Coaching is where I get true satisfaction of giving back to karting. My dream as a child was to become a professional racecar driver. However, this path has given me the opportunity to daily encourage and enrich the lives of those who share the same dream.
