Technology is a benefit for Bo LeMastus.

A wireless connection, a laptop, and a cell phone allows him to operate and oversee a company, even when he's miles and miles away from his home office in Louisville.

Chance are, when he's tethering his laptop to a wireless connection or using his cell phone, he's somewhere on the road.

LeMastus constantly travels to pursue his hobby of racing — when he's not overseeing the day-to-day operations of a vintage-inspired electronics company.

LeMastus is the CEO of Crosley Brands, which produces turntables, jukeboxes, and radios that are designed to evoke the musical eras of Elvis Presley, the Beach Boys, and the Beatles.

Crosley Brands also sponsors his race operations in the ARCA Racing Series.

And like any enterprising individual in business, LeMastus takes a twofold approach to being a driver. He fulfills his passion for racing, and he gives the company he works for exposure.

LeMastus, however, isn't just a weekend warrior when it comes to auto racing.

He's currently sixth in the ARCA Racing Series points standings, and will race Sunday in the Menards 200 at Toledo Speedway.

"You've got to pay the bills," LeMastus said.

"Depending on whatever racing level you're at, if you can afford to do it, and if you're making enough money to do racing, then it's great! But I've got to do both. Racing is purely a passion and with the racing the last 3-4 years, and being able to meet people, I've been able to showcase our brand. That's how I justify it."

As of Wednesday afternoon, 27 drivers have been confirmed for the Menards 200 field, including LeMastus, Brian Keselowski, the brother of Sprint Cup driver Brad Keselowski; and Austin Nemire, a junior at Northview and a Sylvania resident who will make his ARCA debut in the Menards 200.

As a CEO and as a professional driver, LeMastus is constantly on the move. He spent Monday afternoon testing at Toledo Speedway in preparation for Sunday's ARCA race, then returned to Louisville to work Tuesday and Wednesday, before traveling Thursday to Brooklyn, Mich., where he took part in a testing session on the two-mile track at Michigan International Speedway.

"That's what makes ARCA unique," said Lemastus, who has two top-10 finishes this season. "You go from short tracks to superspeedways and you go to the best tracks, then you turn around and run dirt. And then you run a road course."

LeMastus, 53, didn't take a traditional path in racing. In fact, he didn't begin driving on the ARCA series until three years ago, when he lined up for the season opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. In fact, he didn't even drive a stock car until he got behind the wheel three years ago in Florida, after years of racing motocross, dirt bikes, and sports cars.

LeMastus finished 16th in his first stock car race.

"That was the hook," LeMastus said. "The first time I did that, I loved it. From then on, the addiction, the hook, it grows."

LeMastus' progression in business was more linear than his progression in stock-car racing.

In 1984, LeMastus joined Crosley as an intern, doing data entry, and filling out shipping tickets

He worked his way through the company, through accounting and sales, and worked with manufacturers in Asia, and ascended to overseeing the company.

"From the brand side, I've been doing this for 30 some years, and I've really got a good handle on that pace, but I've got a really good team of people back home who basically run the show," LeMastus said.

LeMastus drove in five ARCA races in 2013, two in 2014, then ran a full 20-race ARCA schedule in 2015, finishing sixth in the driver points standings.

At Toledo Speedway, LeMastus spent Monday on the track, where he found that on a half-mile oval, he had to constantly turn, with little time to get used to shorter straightaways. The bottom of the track, he explained, was a more optimal spot to drive.

"I'm still getting used to the short tracks and I'm trying to work on my consistency on the short tracks," LeMastus said. "On a short track, you can't overdrive, and if your car's just right and not handling right, you can't drive right out of that problem, you have to adjust out of it. That's all new to me, the adjustment factor."
