“Ross Hoek has been racing off-road for 20 years, getting his start in 2000 in the CORR Super Stock class. He earned his first win in his second season, and finished second in the points in 2002 with several wins under his belt. In 2003 he stepped up to the Super Truck class earning many wins and securing 2nd in points in 2005. In 2008, after moving to the PRO 2WD class, he brought home the PRO 2WD World Championship.
He now races TORC in PRO 4WD and is a podium contender under the Ross Hoek Motorsports banner. He finished third in the points in 2018, racing a championship winning truck originally built for the Greaves' family team.
The Michigan driver has raced multiple categories in short course off-road, including Pro and Sportsman classes that saw him earn multiple wins and a runner-up championship finish on 4 occasions.
He is supported in his efforts by his wife Cathy Hoek and daughters Tori and Teran. When he isn’t racing, Hoek manages the CNC machining business he owns, Impress Engineering Service.”
Ross’s other passion is SCUBA diving. He and his family travel all over the world to dive at the best sites available. They take "Wilson", a volleyball painted like ‘Wilson’ from the movie Cast Away on all of their dive trips. Wilson was a gift from his nephew after the live-a-board dive boat they were on in Fiji sank in 2017.
