Product41 owner Ronnie Swyers was inspired at a young age from his late "Uncle Bill", a local admired Northwest Porsche racer who primarily carried the #41 on his race cars. At the age of 17 and a junior year in high school, he began building his first car in auto shop class. Ronnie began auto racing the following year in the most hyper competitive class in the northwest earning numerous championships in SCCA & ICSCC regional and national divisions driving low horsepower front wheel drive and higher horsepower Showroom Stock GT cars.

In 2016 a few years after his uncles passing Product41 was started. "My primary reason for starting this company was to give the track day enthusiast and new racers getting into the sport a good resource for product and knowledge, the amount of customers with my personal cell phone number is staggering", said Ronnie. "I pride myself and Product41 on customer service, that is truly the heart of it".
Product41 doesn't just cater to the sports car drivers, but sprint karts and dirt oval speedway. In 2017 Product41 launched the Product41 Arrive-and-Drive speedway karting program at the Salem Speedway in Salem Oregon, Here they run the hyper-competitive Briggs and Stratton LO206 classes. "Our core group of drivers come from the sprint side of karting and the sports car road racers, we offer them a complete turn key program where they show up, race and go home. We try to run our program just as any professional motorsports team would be ran, its a pretty big operation for karting" said Swyers.
With years of racing and coaching experience, in 2011 Ronnie earned his way into the core group of instructors you will find at the Ford Performance Racing School located at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC. and Tooele, UT.
