Anyone who has been competing in Great Race for a while knows that the late Rex Gardner is solely responsible for keeping the sport alive by starting VCRA back in 2007. He also managed to raise more than $1 million through the years for Autism. Rex was very instrumental in getting Sawtooth clocks for those who wanted to rally, and after he passed away in 2019 Bill Croker came in and kept providing the Sawtooth clocks. Then David from Sawtooth decided to no longer produce the clocks it looked like the program would end. But Craig Floyd stepped up to start building the clocks and selling them, and the clocks have been named in honor of Rex. Here’s what Craig had to say: “When David (from Sawtooth clocks) and Bill (Croker) retired from the clock program they decided to retire the Sawtooth name. We all agreed that REXtime would be a good choice for the next generation of clocks and they are produced by Auburn Rally Clocks (ARC). All the proceeds from the program will be donated to the X-Cup teams participating in the race. The first shipment is scheduled for early March. Price is $200 per clock with the $100 buy back program after the race.” You can reach Craig at [email protected] for more information about the clocks.
