We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!

Our Team

Crash Pad is a two-man wrecking crew. A grandfather-grandson duo is how they ride, together. Denny, pictured to the left, is a retired engineer who has been in the racing world for nearly five decades. He lives and breathes racing and wants all drivers to be safe when competing. Nic, pictured below, is his first grandson and also his protégé. He is studying corporate innovation and entrepreneurship at Penn State University and is set to graduate in 2021.



Our Story

The idea for Crash Pad began several years ago. After hours of research and analysis, Denny and his friend Dave came up with a solution to help reduce spinal injury for race car drivers: Crash Pad was born. In 2019, Nic saw an opportunity to reinvent the company. Previously 802 Solutions, the company rebranded and pivoted as Crash Pad. Together, they hope to change the world, one Crash Pad at a time.
