To our offroadracing family.
We are disappointed, yet excited, to announce that it is time for Murray and Julie to hang up the stopwatch, put away the clipboard, turn off the radios and step back from off road racing.
“It’s time to step aside and let the next generation rise up. We’ve had some good times and some disappointing ones; but ultimately the friendships we have made over the years were the reason we stayed in the sport for as long as we have. It’s now time to concentrate on the next chapter of our lives, be there for our grandkids and maybe drive off into the sunset on our next adventure, whatever that may be.”
It has been a long off road racing journey from when Murray started building his first buggy in 1970 to giving up competition and selling his last and fifth buggy in 1989. During the late 80’s Murray started coding and developing RaceSoft, an event timing system completely unique to off road racing and the basis of the software we use today.
Julie came into the picture in 1993 and has steadfastly supported Murray in his dedication to giving back to the sport he loves for all the years of racing enjoyment he had.
“We wish the best to all the clubs, events, volunteers, competitors and sponsors that have supported us over the years. You put your trust and faith in our event management abilities and we hope that we have helped you set the ground work to enable you to prosper and continue to offer top notch events in the great sport of off road racing.”
“We cannot put a value on the many friends we have made. Some have stuck by us for decades and were in our bridal party, others have come into our lives more recently, but all are treasured for their ongoing support of us, and helping us support the sport.”
“We wish everyone the best with wherever your life’s journey takes you.”
Murray and Julie Rogers
