Ron has had a passion for cars and racing since childhood. He rediscovered that passion in 1997 when he joined the University of Minnesota FSAE team. Since then, he has worked as mechanic, data acquisition, and race engineer for Genoa Racing, JDC Motorsports and Anderson Racing before starting ZSports Midwest with Steve Thomson.
After working together for 5 years, Steve Thomson and Ron Boltik decided to take the next step. In the winter of 2008 they formed ZSports Midwest with the goal of providing top level services and engineering for aspiring drivers to hone and showcase their talents. The results for 2008 would be considered a success for a veteran team, much less one in its rookie season: two poles and six top fives in qualifying, a win, a podium four top‐fives and six top‐ten finishes.
