Biff Harris Jr. & Tifenie Harris

Team Owners

Who got you into snowmobiling and when; what was their influence on your regard to the sport?
When I was a kid, my dad was involved in snowmobiling and racing. This made me want to race and get involved with snowmobiles. My dad is a small engine mechanic, so we always had snowmobiles, bikes, and other off road vehicles. This kept us involved in many different types of racing as we grew up.

After racing for other teams, we my wife and I decided we wanted to have our own team that was family oriented. We started our own team built with all of our own family members and a few very close friends. We would not be able to have started the Harris Racing Team without the support from all our sponsors.
