The Beginning- A passion for racing. Growing up with a father having a love for things with motors it only made sense for him to present his son with the opportunities to do the same. He brought Daryl home a three wheeler and the foundation of what is today was started. Daryl rode almost daily at such a young age on a dirt track built in the back yard, he showed promise almost immediately. That lead to the desire to compete, which happened for the first time on a 1983 Honda 200X. After a few years he graduated to a four wheelers, which he continues to race today. Eventually, Daryl went to college to earn a degree as a tool and die machinist.
Early Years of Rath Racing – How and why was this company started?Rath Racing was started by one individual; Daryl Rath. Through his dedication and hard work he took a hobby- a passion for racing and built a company around it. The aftermarket industry in the mid 80’s was not like it is now and Daryl had to learn how to fix and create his own components for his machine. Daryl took all of his knowledge of quads and developed his own line of professional racing components. Once his products showed up at the track on winning quads the orders started coming in. After a few years it was clear the demand for products has grown and it was time to expand, add some employees and continue to develop and design new products to keep up. Even while building Rath Racing; Daryl has continued to race competitively.
