RPS TEAM MANAGER - MARCUS MCBAIN
The organization and strategic direction is set by Marcus McBain. Marcus is a former corporate executive that has held management and director positions at Deloitte & Touche, IBM, TransCanada Gas, and Dynegy. McBain raced for nearly two decades as a hobby during his corporate life, but managed to win a few Nationals as well as over 25 races and regional championships.
leaving the “corporate life”, Marcus opened Racing Performance Services (RPS)
in 2003 and turned his hobby into his new
profession. RPS operated its own racing school as well as its core product
offering of chassis engineering. In its
second year of operation, RPS became the #1 dealer in the United States for
Traxxion Dynamics’ product(s). RPS also provided
professional racing services for teams and individual riders including rider
training, agent representation, and contracted
mechanical services. From 2003 – 2007,
RPS sponsored riders and customers won over 800 races, over
100 regional and national championships , and finished in the top 10 of AMA
Proracing nine times. Starting in 2006,
McBain began focusing the majority of his energies and efforts towards Danny S.
Kelsey as the Georgetown rider showed more
raw natural talent than McBain had seen from all of his previous riders.
2007 – 2008 Marcus McBain worked with Clear Channel Communications out of
Houston, Texas as well ESPN to produce the
Liberty Motorsports Hour on ESPN 97.5 fm. The
show was a ratings success despite the
lack of exposure of motorsports
in the Houston, Texas metro area. The show and its advertising was an
example of the power of motorsports with the
“fan” in this country.
McBain has additionally been the principal of Liberty Motorsports Park in Cleveland, Texas. One of the first fully publicly financed motorsports park in the United States, NASCAR based publications have printed glowing reports of how Bruton Smith and Marcus McBain have lead the way to public financing in Motorsports.
