In October 2012, Mr. Brooks was recognized with the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce Presidents Award recognizing someone who makes an exceptional effort, going above and beyond the call of duty in any area of business and community development.
Ted, along with his wife Jo-Aanne have been instrumental in the local racing community, while having a team of six competitors locally and sponsoring many more local drivers over their eight years in racing.
