Roybuilt Racing is Roy Johnson from Linden, NJ. Roy has come on board to help support the Corvette Challenge as an associate sponsor for the 2002 season. Some of you know Roy because you have seen him turning wrenches at Cartek. Roy will be celebrating his second anniversary with Cartek on Oct 1st, 2002. Roy is a technician and the key person responsible for building up some of those super fast cars that have come out of Cartek's shop in the past year. Roy puts together the Head and Cam packages, super chargers and twin turbo installs. Roy does all the pulling and installing of the motors. He knows the LS1 engine so well that he says you can show him a bolt that came out of an LS1 motor and he can tell you where it goes. In addition to these duties, Roy also does clutches, suspension, exhaust work and anything else that needs to get done at the shop.

Before his current stint, Roy did general auto repair in Roselle at Brake-o-Roma where he did performance work on his boss' 280zx. Eventually the owner moved out and in conversations with Julio Hormilla from Cartek, passed Roy's name as a candidate to join their team. Roy met with Julio and started work right away and he "loves every minute of it". Roy has been "playing with cars" since he was 8 or 9 years old. His uncle gave him work to do and he did it and that is how he has learned what he knows; on the job training. Roy says, "I have always been the top dog wherever I work except when I was a rookie". What Roy enjoys most however, is teamwork and working with other members of the Cartek family.

Roy has had some exposure to racing. Roy recalls in his younger days having accepted a challenge or two at a traffic light. However he gets more pleasure out of building cars so they can go fast and "kick ass". Roy aspires to perhaps one day be able to work with a pro NHRA team building engines.

On the personal front, Roy has a son, Tyrie who is 11, and "I love him to death" Roy says. One of these days he is going to build a car so Tyrie can race. Cars are all Tyrie talks about and he is following his father's footsteps. Roy is a very laid back individual. On a typical day Roy goes to work, does his job and when his day is done he likes to settle down with a video game. Roy calls himself a "video game junky". Roy plays PS 2 and currently enjoys adventure games like Max Pain. Once he "beats a game" he does not play it anymore. Tyrie likes to play but can't beat his dad except for at Tony Hawke Pro Skating. When Roy gets frustrated with a game he let's it go and play's something else and when he goes back to the first game he will usually have better success. Not a very outgoing person, Roy would rather stay home and "stay out of trouble". Roy enjoys the games in his "Arcade-like environment at home complete with surround sound and "the whole nine". As for the car games, Roy prefers Gran Turismo 2 better than 3 because he feels the cars don't react as well in 3 as opposed to 2. Roy is a big NASCAR fan and particularly a Jeff Gordon fan. So much a fan that Roy wears the #24 around his neck on a chain. Roy also collects diecast cars and estimates he must have over $2000 in diecast cars. Roy remembers his first NHRA experience at Raceway Park. Not knowing what to expect, he watched as the cars did their burnouts. When the tree came down that 7000 horsepower car hit the throttle, Roy jumped 50 feet in the air! He shot lots of pictures that day and managed to catch Tony Pedegron in one of those shots with throwaway camera.

Roy likes to think of himself as "The nastiest car builder out there and puts one hell of car together" Roy would also like to send a special thanks to Julio, Dave, his protégé, Rich and Ray from Cartek. And also a special thanks to his family and friends too.

Please join us in welcoming and thanking Roy Johnson, Roybuilt Racing, for supporting the Corvette Challenge.
