Steve LaRoza started his professional racing career at the age of 19 with motocross & off-road motorcycling. With continuing success in racing, LaRoza made his way into truck racing with his daughter Alison as his co-driver. The LaRoza Team won championship after championship & paved the way to LaRoza’s relationship with Ford Motorsports.
LaRoza helped pioneer the Ford EcoBoost 3.5L motor in desert racing with support from Ford, General Tire & other sponsors. By this time the LaRoza racing team had championships across the board in desert racing with both motorcycles & trucks.
In 2015, it was time for a new challenge. Steve competed in the Rally America series and was awarded the 2015 Rally America Rookie of the Year award.
With the support of key sponsors, the plan is to hoist the Rally America, 2WD Overall National Championship in 2016.
