Hansen Motorsports has a rich racing history. Team owner Bill Hansen started racing 45 years ago as both a driver and team founder. His racing career includes driving stock cars on Washington state Short Tracks and Sprint cars in the Midwest. His career also included Stock Block Indy cars in the American Indy Car series where he was a perennial three-championship points finisher.

Since retiring as a driver, Hansen has continued to build Hansen Motorsports and is involved in the driver development of Todd Hansen – believing three important elements exist that lead to success: “Intelligence. Courage, and Velcro” – where a successful driver becomes “part of the car” each time he cinches up the belts.

Todd Hansen

Todd began racing when he was 16 years old. Todd has led the team’s crew overseeing all car setup and mechanical decisions.

Todd Hansen is a former Minneapolis All-City hockey player and excelled in the sport of baseball. He is an avid hunter and fisherman. Having started his racing career at age 16, Todd has more than 100 wins. He started in the ARCA Re/MAX Series in 2006 and has had 3 top 10 finishes through the 2008 racing season.

Todd has further refined his racing skills with experience racing on short and intermediate tracks as well as superspeedways and restrictor plate programs in the NASCAR Elite Series in 2002 and 2005. In additional to his ARCA Re/MAX results, Todd’s credentials include:

  1. 1·  Minnesota Late Model/Super Late Model Champion, I-94 Raceway, Sauk Centre, Minnesota

  3. 3·  Minnesota Late Model Challenge Series Champion
