Al Lebert’s motorsports career started in 1999 at a young age helping a friend clean his race car. His Motorsport career quickly evolved to crewing for a NASCAR team and within a few years he wore every hat in motorsports from team owner, NASCAR Driver, Crew Chief, Race Car Builder and Team Manager.
Al's journey in the world of motorsports further evolved in 2012 with a challenging endeavor: the relocation of Avion Motorsports' NASCAR team to Ottawa, Ontario. Capitalizing on his newfound momentum, in 2015 he was soon presented with an incredible opportunity; co-designing and constructing a brand-new race car concept - dubbed 'RS1'. With 30 custom builds now delivered across Western Canada alone, what started as just another relationship has taken him down some incredibly fast lanes!
For 30 years Mike has been building the winningest and most durable race cars in Canada with race victories and championships in many different series. His business has also grown to become the largest part supplier for race teams in multiple series from coast to coast.
With Mike's expertise and background along with his proven track record, he was the perfect choice to assist Avion with the design and development of the RS1 chassis package and Mike continues to build the chassis for each RS1 racecar to exacting specifications and identical performance on the track.
