Kurt Robertson Enterprises was founded on performance based results.
My mechanic career began at the Indianapolis 500 as a engine and gearbox man for the #17 Vollstedt Enterprises Entry
After completing the two year automotive program at Sylvanias' Portland Community College in one year, Senior Indy car builder Rolla Vollstedt initially hired me to run a 1978 AJ Watson-Offy "T" car for the 1983 500 , but I ended up on the #17 Vollstedt- Offy. After the "83 500" Rolla then helped me join multiple west coast venues with team owners Dick Simon of Dick Simon Racing, Andreaus LeBerle of Project Indy and Antonio Ferrari of Euromotorsports. Most these chassis were modern day March or Lola T-9300 chassis powered with DFX Cosworth, Buick Turbo V6, Stock block Chevrolet , Mercedes or Honda. All were injected, all were turbo and all were in excess of 1000 horsepower.
