Now lives in Indianapolis where he still runs Rasmussen Racing Products and is a highly regarded fabricator. His work on exhausts has been vital to teams in the IRL. Rasmussen's racing background was in supermodified cars and dirt track racing in Alberta and he remained linked to that particular discipline for years - he was on the board of directors of the CAMRA and president of the Edmonton Auto Racing Association for some time. He retired from driving after his last Indianapolis attempt in 1979 and has also worked as a car builder and designer.
