Cal Club Rookie

Name: Robert Kazen
Class: DSR
Car: West Race Cars
Hometown: Fallbrook, CA
Age: 44
Marital Status: Married to wife, Michelle.

When did you start racing?
First race was in a Bomber Stock at El
Cajon Speedway.

Racing Goals: My goal is to push myself
at every level and see if I can be competitive.
If so, I would like to be a part of the 2010
Runoffs. On the business side my goal is to
expand my racing engine services. In the past
my motorcycle engines were specifically built
for the street bike and sand car market.
My DSR is the perfect platform I need to test
and develop reliable and powerful engine
packages. I hope to have proven engines to
offer in the near future.

Racing History:
1985 to 1990 - Spent my Saturday nights
at the local circle tracks.
1990 to 1995 - Did mostly drag racing,
asphalt, sand drags, and boats.
1995 to 2000 - Was introduced to Shifter
Karts and got hooked!
2000 to Current - Fortunate enough to
land some rides in vintage road racing
cars. Driven A Sedan, B Production, and
Trans Am.
2008 to Current - Ran my first race with
my DSR in 8/08.

Members of Race Team: My wife
Michelle and my daughter Michaela.
Thanks Girls!

Sponsors: Kazen Racing

Other hobbies or interests: F1, AMLS,
Rolex series, Indy Car, Off Road Cars,
Sand Cars, going to the desert, Drag
Racing, Bonneville, I guess anything
with an engine in it.

Occupation: Kazen Racing is my shop
and I do engines, fab work, race prep,
work on muscle cars. I build turbo systems,
exhaust systems, most things related
to high performance toys.

Why Cal Club and DSR?
I've always wanted to race. Cal Club
provides the perfect opportunity for me.
It's a monumental task to get to the race
track in most cases. youneed a team and a
big budget. With SCCA and Cal Club I can
do it on a much smaller scale. Being at
the track with Cal Club has proven to be
a great atmosphere and I've already met
some cool people. Hope to be a member
for many years. I chose DSR for a lot of
reasons, but the main reason was my
interest in motorcycle engines. I've been
building motorcycle powered sand cars
since 1987, so it's just a natural transition
for me.
