Motorsports Law

Motorsports is an industry few attorneys focus on, but Skufca Law, is different. Ron Skufca has long histories of involvement in the sport. For more than 10 years he has advocated for the legal needs of drivers, teams, tracks and sponsors.

Ron understands the racing industry.

Ron represents NASCAR cup teams Front Row Motorsports, and Leavine Family Racing, as well as several drivers in the NASCAR series.

Ron Skufca grew up in the pits at race tracks around the southeast when he and his brother lent a hand with a two-car late model team for several years before heading to college. Ron has competed in various forms of motorsports over the years, including SCCA races, motocross and karting.
