Tracer Racing was formed in 1979 by San Francisco Region drivers Chuck Billington and Tom Foster. The pair began their partnership running in C Sports Racing, a natural fit, as Billington experimented with different chassis and engine ideas, and Foster loved to design different car body styles. The team raced for twenty years, claiming thirteen National Championships. However, it was not their on-track success that set them apart, but rather the attitude with which they raced. Throughout their years at the track, they embodied the philosophy that SCCA Club Racers should be racing for the fun, the friends, and the fellowship. That friendship extended to every worker that made their races possible, and Tracer Racing frequently paid tribute to the volunteers of SCCA through special donations and activities.
