Driver Profile: Corey Rueth

By Winding Road Staff

March 28, 2016

As others were learning in karts and motorcycles, Rueth remembers cutting road courses into the yard and trying to set new lap records with the lawn mower. Determined, Rueth restored VW bugs at a young age to turn his dad’s hand-me-down Grand Am into a 5.0 Mustang where he got his first taste of conquering corners on the back roads of Dallas. Rueth wandered his way through street racing, drag racing, autocross and shifter karts before discovering his love for the sport and the community of road racing.

Along with his responsibilities heading the Driver Development Program for Winding Road Racing’s 2016 MX-5 Arrive and Drive team, Corey races for Team Winding Road as well. A NASA Spec Iron national champion, he has also been a pole winner and secured second in class in the Mazda Race of NASA Champions in NC generation MX-5 Cup cars. Along with being an avid racer, Corey is also a driving coach & jet pilot.
