LFR LEADERSHIP TEAM
Bob Leavine, owner of WRL General Contractors, LTD., was born in Tampa, Fla.. He graduated from University of South Florida in 1968 with a degree in Industrial Management. Two years after college, while employed by DuPont in Camden, S.C., Leavine got his first taste of racing and the meaning of being a NASCAR fan.
The year 1976 brought a new opportunity and adventure as Leavine and his wife, Sharon, relocated to New Mexico to start a construction company. They relocated again to Texas in 1985, and the 35 year-old business continues to prosper and reach new heights. Leavine’s skill and innovation, evident in his success in the business world, are proof of a competitive spirit, and a dedication to do whatever it takes to win.
The world of NASCAR has refueled this family’s passion to make an impact on the sport they love. During the 2010 season, as an entry into NASCAR, Bob Leavine was a sponsor in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
