Founded by owner Christian Kuhn almost 20 years ago, Speed Motorsport Management was established in an effort to create partnerships between German race car drivers and local industry, with the goal of penetrating the U.S. motorsport market. Over the years, Speed has built an impressive network of contacts, partners, associates and relationships in the International motorsports world. Leveraging his connections and reputation in the industry Kuhn continues to connect German drivers and sponsors with premier International motorsport teams to the benefit of clients, sponsors and teams alike continue to profit today.

Speed then went on to establish its own NASCAR team, which was initially focused on developing and promoting up and coming German and European drivers. Through its team, Speed provided opportunities for many young race drives to successfully navigate the highly complex NASCAR network and obtain drives in one or more of the NASCAR series. Working with Speed, many German companies have engaged and profited from their involvement in international and American motorsport. Speed offers the opportunity to instantly become established in the U.S. market through its extensive business and sporting contacts.
