R&R Racing is the definition of a family tradition. Headed by Dennis Roberson, three generations have built and raced dirt cars, finding success at racetracks across Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and Ohio.

At this time the R&R Racing team has four drivers, including Roberson and his nephews Tyler Collis, Matthew King and Mackenzie Collis. Four race cars (one open wheel modified and three KDRA street stocks) are housed and worked on in a two-car garage at Roberson’s home.

Together, Roberson and family built the street stocks from the ground up, including all of the welding and fabricating work. Along with their own race cars, the R&R Racing team has built cars for other drivers. All of this is done out of the same small garage.

A long-time dirt racer, Roberson has captured numerous feature wins and multiple track championships. In 2017, Tyler Collis, a rookie in the KDRA street stock division, picked up his first feature win and finished top-five in two track points chases — all behind the wheel of an R&R Race Car.

The Search for A Champion prize would go a long way for this family-run operation.
