Mercer Motorsports Enterprises L.L.C. is a professional motorsports racing team coupled together with a dynamic marketing business. We specialize in helping our business partners grow relationships, create brand value, and drive sales in the expanding automotive off-road and aftermarket performance parts industries.
Our professional off-road racing team is based in Suwanee, Georgia and is led by Ken Mercer, the team's owner and driver. Ken competed for several years in the World Extreme Rock Crawling Championship Series (W.E.ROCK) as Team # 770 in the Unlimited class. In 2006 we were designated a Professional Team by the W.E.ROCK sanctioning body.
In 2007 we shifted gears to compete in the exciting new sport of Xtreme Rock Racing. In our first racing season with the Xtreme Rock Racing Association (XRRA), we finished in 7th place in the newly established XRRA Eastern Division, and 15th place overall among the 50+ teams in the nationals series. 2008 promises to be an even more exciting year for our team as we carry this momentum forward with a solid foundation and plans to be among the top 10 teams in the XRRA.
Ken "doc" Mercer is a life-long racing fan. It all started at the age of 10 with his first racing go-cart and has evolved over time to include motocross, and off-road racing. Always an avid outdoorsman, Ken has also been very active in the local and regional off-road enthusiast community over the past 10-years, having recently served as President of one of the largest and most active Jeep clubs in the country. Ken also served as Director of land use and has worked closely with the U.S.F.S. to coordinate numerous trail clean-up efforts in order to promote a positive image and help preserve access to public lands for off-road recreation. Ken also served as President and C.E.O. of Atlanta Off-road Enthusiasts, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to education and promotion of safe and responsible motorized off-road recreation.
