Petecrosby87 - Pete Crosby
I was born in a small town in South Georgia and my farther was a OTR truck driver for 30+ years. So as a young man I was getting to learn the ins and outs of large trucks. Mostly greasing and bumping tires but it was the start of a career that I love. I started working with a small trucking company in 2013 as a welder/mechanic and I’ve never looked back.
Growing up around trucks and hot rods gave me a head start in my career as a heavy diesel mechanic. When I started my career with the 44 companies it was a small time trucking company. We had maybe 15 trucks and 30 log trailers, we currently have 65 trucks and 270 trailers. We have grown very fast but never lost the small time family own company feel.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing mechanics that taught me everything they know. From a simple brake job to rebuilding a fuller transmission. I’ve also had the pleasure of building set out trucks along with brand new log trailers from the ground up. The experience I’ve had in the last 9 years has taught me that to do this job you must have tough, durable, and great looking tools. That being said, that’s why I wanted to work with Olsa tools. Not only do their tools and accessories look amazing, they are long lasting top of the line tools. But the best part is that the price tag won’t brake the bank, and in times like this, what more can you ask for? I’m very thankful to be able to work with a great group of people, and a company that stands behind their products.

After high school, the arts and technology center placed me at a Midas location where I started my apprenticeship. From Midas, I moved out west and worked with Budget Brake and Muffler for 11 years, and now I have been with St. Anne's Car Clinic/OK Tire in Winnipeg for roughly 4 years. I went from being a lube tech to a brake/custom exhaust specialist, and now I am the Head Mechanic of our busy shop and an automotive content creator! Creating content has given me a unique opportunity to learn about tool manufacturers that I may have not come across on the overpriced tool trucks.
One day while scrolling through my feed, I came across Canadian tool brand that I had never heard of before. I started looking at more and more of their offerings and was excited to see a Olsa Tools had quality tools for half of what the tool trucks charge. Needless to say, more and more of their products were finding a permanent spot in my tool box. I ended up reaching out to them because I loved what they were doing and wanted to partner up and grow my content with an amazing Canadian company!

From a young age, I’ve always been into mechanical repair (I was too broke to pay anyone else to fix it!!). I started in the industry as an apprentice at Edmonton Freightliner and received my Red Seal HET Journeyman certification in 1998. I worked in various shops on a ton of different equipment over the years, which I loved!
I got into the Oil and Gas sector and became a rig mechanic, which then led to an international postings in Mexico, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. My career progression then led into Project Management and, with my wife and 2 kids, we moved to Dubai in 2009; where I worked for Weatherford Drilling International for 8 years. I’ve been fortunate in my career to have worked on various project and equipment on every continent except Antarctica (so far!!). We moved back to St Albert in 2015 and I established my business; going back to what I loved….fixing cars, trucks, and anything else that came through the door! Partnering with OK Tire in 2019 right at the start of a global pandemic was a challenge, but has been a fun ride so far and I have a great customer base that appreciates our quality of work and honest approach to customer service! I started my TikTok account to help people understand the industry, improve their maintenance abilities, and have a laugh while doing it!
The reason I chose to partner with Olsa Tools as an ambassador is to help showcase this young company’s excellent product to more people that can use it in both professional high-volume shops and the DIY guy in his garage! Both will benefit from having a pro level product to use to help create the perfect result of any project they take on! I like that Olsa is a small company taking on the challenge of this market by going head-on against some of the biggest brands in the industry and succeeding! I wanted to be a part of that energy and help their continued success!
Team Hansen Drifting
Rudy and Chellee Hansen are an inspiring couple based in Pocatello, Idaho, known for their passion for motorsports and their journey in the world of drifting. They have three teenagers, and interestingly, two of their three kids share their enthusiasm for drifting. The family bond extends to the racetrack, where the kids have been learning the art of drifting, initially on ice and now on pavement, under Rudy and Chellee's guidance. The Hansens have truly made drifting a family affair.
Their story is one of determination and resilience, as they transitioned from other high-risk sports to drifting due to Chellee's diagnosis of stage 2 breast cancer, which made her unable to continue participating in those sports due to the risk radiation posed to her bones. Their background in various adrenaline-pumping activities such as motocross, autocross, downhill mountain biking, skiing, and water sports provided them with a solid foundation for their venture into drifting. Their journey into the drifting scene began unexpectedly when they stumbled upon a Vegas Drift event while in Las Vegas. Rudy's ride-along experience at the event ignited his passion for drifting, leading him to purchase a C4 Corvette and later a Nissan 240sx S13 to dive deeper into drift builds and improve his skills.
Rudy's dedication and hard work paid off when he achieved his Formula Drift ProSpec license at a Lone Star Drift Pro Am competition in Texas in 2020. He continued to hone his skills in ProSpec for three years, all with the ultimate dream of becoming a Formula Drift Pro Driver.
In a remarkable turn of events, Rudy fulfilled his dream and reached the pinnacle of drifting by becoming a Formula Drift Pro Driver. Chellee, inspired by her husband's journey and her own passion for motorsports, began her own driving journey in 2020 and eventually started competing alongside Rudy at Hotpit Autofest series in 2023. Their partnership as a power couple in the world of drifting serves as an inspiration to many, showcasing their ability to overcome challenges and achieve their dream of competing in Formula Drift together.
Rudy and Chellee's story is a testament to the power of determination, love, and teamwork. They have conquered the world of drifting and continue to inspire others in countless ways, both on and off the track.
