About Us

Family Owned & Operated

Santa Cruz Motorsports is family owned and operated by Richard and Cindy  Smith since 2006. Between the two of them they have over 50 years experience in the industry. Richard started wrenching when he was 17. He started working in a shop as a clean up kid and quickly advanced while  taking night classes after he graduated high school where he took Auto  Shop. Cindy stumbled into the business when she started working for a local dealership in the office, she then transferred to the service department where she excelled. Cindy continued to work for the Busenhart Brothers for twenty-three years. Now Cindy and Richard own Santa Cruz  Motorsports, with their experience and knowledge they have a reputation of honest, dependable and quality work.
