Roger is the owner of Route 103 Auto. When Roger founded Route 103 Auto in 2010, it was strongly influenced by his belief that honesty and integrity are the keys to success. Today, Roger continues to provide a stable and enjoyable work environment for his staff, a personal touch to each vehicle he works on, a cheerful greeting to each customer he sees, and the determination to always get the job done. Roger has attended a variety of technician training and Business Management classes. Roger enjoys traveling to several events each year and loves to mix and mingle with the industries best. When Roger isn’t working on a customer’s vehicle, you can usually still find him in the shop working on one of his own personal projects. During the summer, Roger enjoys hiking, enjoying the peace and quiet of nature, and spending time with family. During the winter season, Roger also loves to get out on the snowmobiles for some fun.
Ruthanne is the newest and oldest team member to 103 Auto and Heads Up Motorsports. When we first opened in 2009, Ruthanne was one of the first to come alongside her husband Roger to get the business going. Ruthanne spent several years helping out in the office, but then other duties called and she decided it was time to do something new. After spending the past several years watching children, Ruthanne recently returned to the staff at 103 Auto. You’ll find her in the office where she’ll greet you with a cheery hello, no matter what time of day!
Ruthanne believes that family is everything, and her children and family always come first. She is very involved in the Chester Baptist Church and community outreach. She fills her spare timing helping out in the community, spending time with friends and family, and is always looking for volunteer opportunities. Additional hobbies include spending time outdoors, making handmade cards, and creating beautiful arrangements with wooden flowers.

Rye always knew that he wanted to work in the automotive field. He obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering with the intent to join a race team or work on race cars. As fate may have it, things didn’t work out according to plan and he ended up joining the team at Heads Up Motorsports. Rye has been with Heads Up Motorsports for the past six years and is continually working on new projects and learning new things.
Rye’s hobbies include rally racing, circle track racing, building cars, and just having his hands on cars in general. Rye has a soft spot for older Mitsubishis and Diesel Ford trucks, and has a collection of his own vehicles. As with most technicians, one car is never enough!
