Marketing Public Relations: Roger Benson
Residence: Findlay, Ohio
Marital Status: Married to Deb
Children: Three sons, Joshua, Jared and Jordan and Two daughters, Mandie and Ashlie

Roger’s interest in sprint car racing began back in his youth. Being raised in Northwest Ohio had its advantages for someone who was a fan of sprint car racing with race tracks like Limaland, Fremont, Eldora and Millstream all within a short distance from home. Several years ago Greg and Roger got together with two specific goals…Greg owning his own team and to run full-time with the World of Outlaws. Entering into the 2016 season those two primary goals have been met. This will be the seventh year that Benson Marketing has represented Greg Wilson Racing.
