HAROLD MARTIN RACING

Team owner, Race Car Driver, Crew Chief and Engineer, Harold Martin, continues to turn his dreams to reality both on and off the race track.  Harold has built a legacy by combining his creative mind, aptitude and commitment to advancing engineering entertainment through his passion in Motorsports.

In an era where hired drivers and purchased race cars and engines are the norm, Harold is a second generation motorsports team owner/driver, automotive engineer and Chief Executive Officer of a growing corporation. Although these combined responsibilities would be daunting to some, it is a challenge that Harold has enthusiastically embraced on all levels with tremendous success.  

He led several development programs during his OEM engineering career and been awarded 15 world patents. Most of the innovations are in production vehicles globally and have driven new competency levels throughout industries.  

Driven by his entrepreneur spirit and desire to both brand his creativity and broaden his technology application, Harold left his OEM career to launch Martin Motorsports which later expanded to MARTIN TECHNOLOGIES. This career change allowed him to focus on racing technology development not only in the lab but also on the track.   “Being a competitive person, I also wanted to make a significant contribution – not just be a face in the crowd, but make an impact, so I never miss an opportunity to learn and contribute.”
