Our Story

We met in college and started down a path of renewable energy racing as we pursued our mechanical engineering degrees. By the time we graduated, we had created a race team, built relationships with excellent sponsors and set up a motorsports shop. 

As business partners, we got our start as founders of the non-profit group Greenspeed Research in Boise, Idaho. Greenspeed Research hit the national stage as we set multiple land speed records with our custom built, renewable energy, truck in the C/DT class at El Mirage and the Bonneville Salt Flats. 

We spent years designing and building the custom high performance solutions we needed to break records and showcase our passion for renewable energy in one of the most trying environments for cutting edge applications: racing. 

Racing proved to be the ultimate test of our fabrication and design techniques and sharpened every skill set used to create the Delta VS product lines.


As outdoor enthusiasts we were raised in the Rocky Mountains. We have learned to build solutions for all seasons, terrains, and temperatures. We have been racing down the surface of the salt flats in blazing heat, 4-wheeling through a fall mountain trails, camping in the desert & driven over treacherous winter mountain passes. We climb, hike, hunt, and do all we can to preserve and protect the environment we are in.
